  • Publication number: 20120290727
    Abstract: A method for increasing the performance of a transmission control protocol (TCP) session transmitted over a telephony local loop between a client and a server. The method comprises: providing a proxy system between the client and the server, the client and the server being coupled through a network; intercepting, at the proxy system, a request transmitted by the client; transparently establishing a first TCP session between the client and the proxy system, and a second TCP session between the proxy system and the server; and storing data, received from the server in response to the request, in a buffer at the proxy system, when throughput between the server and proxy system is greater than throughput between the proxy system and the client.
