This document discusses both use cases and operational experience with Multipath TCP (MPTCP) in real networks.  It lists several prominent use cases where Multipath TCP has been considered and is being used.  It also gives insight to some heuristics and decisions that have helped to realize these use cases and suggests possible improvements.

This document is a product of the Multipath TCP Working Group of the IETF.
