In this paper we overview the implementation of TCP Boston-a novel fragmentation-tolerant transport protocol, especially suited for ATM's 53-byte cell-oriented switching architecture. TCP Boston integrates a standard TCP/IP protocol, such as Reno or Vegas, with a powerful redundancy control mechanism based on AIDA-an adaptive version of Rabin's IDA dispersal and reconstruction algorithms. Our results show that TCP Boston improves TCP/IP's performance over ATMs for both network-centric metrics (e.g., effective throughput) and application-centric metrics (e.g., response time)
