   TCP/IP communication is currently restricted to a single path per
   connection, yet multiple paths often exist between peers.  The
   simultaneous use of these multiple paths for a TCP/IP session would
   improve resource usage within the network and, thus, improve user
   experience through higher throughput and improved resilience to
   network failure.

   Multipath TCP provides the ability to simultaneously use multiple
   paths between peers.  This document presents a set of extensions to
   traditional TCP to support multipath operation.  The protocol offers
   the same type of service to applications as TCP (i.e., reliable
   bytestream), and it provides the components necessary to establish
   and use multiple TCP flows across potentially disjoint paths.

   This document specifies v1 of Multipath TCP, obsoleting v0 as
   specified in RFC6824 [RFC6824] through clarifications and
   modifications primarily driven by deployment experience.
