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.
