  • Patent number: 5852717
    Abstract: Systems and methods of increasing the performance of computer networks, especially networks connecting users to the Web, are provided. Performance is increased by reducing the latency the client experiences between sending a request to the server and receiving a response. A connection cache may be maintained by an agent on the network access equipment to more quickly respond to request for network connections to the server. Additionally, the agent may maintain a cache of information to more quickly respond to requests to get an object if it has been modified. These enhancements and other described herein may be implemented singly or in conjunction to reduce the latency involved in sending the requests to the server by saving round-trip times between computer network components.
