Hi all,


Just to let you know about some things we are thinking about. This would be
a list of objectives regarding TCM-TF:


- We have contacted guifi.net  (a community network in Spain) in order to
perform a study about the potential savings to be obtained with TCM-TF. It
is a wide network based on Wi-Fi, so small packet flows are very
inefficient. We will analyze anonymized traffic traces, in order to find
flows sharing a path including a number of hops. 


- We are thinking about building a first TCM-TF implementation. I have found
some open source implementations of the protocols involved (e.g. ROHC,
https://launchpad.net/rohc). It also exists a Linux package including PPP
over L2TP (pppol2tp).


- We should start thinking about the "negotiation protocol"


More ideas?
