RFC 2507 IP Header Compression

Interested in better bandwidth utilization? Mitigate IP overhead using GateHouse RFC 2507 Header Compression (IPHC).

Optimize bandwidth utilization

As applications and solutions become increasingly bandwidth consuming, optimizing the utilization of bandwidth becomes increasingly more valuable and necessary.

Highly portable

Implemented as a simple C++ library, the IPHC implementation is highly portable and can be embedded into almost any platform. This provides you with the flexibility to use it for several different projects.

Widely used

RFC 2507 IP Header Compression has over 10 years of usage in more than 20 different types of satellite terminals. The wide adoption is a true testimony of the value offered by the module.

Technical description

Used across several products and deployed world-wide, the GateHouse IP Header Compression (IPHC) implementation greatly increases the bandwidth utilization of IP connections with a high header to payload ratio. Compliant to the RFC 2507 Internet standard, it reduces the protocol overhead of IP communication by up to 90% by compressing the packet headers of the TCP, UDP, and IP protocols leaving out unnecessary information.

For applications, such as Voice over IP, instant messaging, or media streaming, where the protocol overhead often accounts for 50% of the total bandwidth usage, header compression has a substantial impact on the performance of an internet connection – even more so for metered connections.

Features

  • IPv4 header compression, incl. options
  • IPv6 header compression, incl. extension headers
  • TCP compression
  • UDP compression
  • Non-TCP compression
  • Ordered/Reordering modes

Interfaces

  • C++ API for compression/decompression

Better bandwidth utilization

Mitigate IP overhead using GateHouse RFC 2507 Header Compression (IPHC). As IP connections often introduce a high overhead that consumes the bandwidth of the connection, you might be interested in a better bandwidth utilization.
