Dear Network Operators, Its been a while since Ive posted updates on the mailing list. I would like to provide a short update on the Network Coded TCP project that we have implemented in the Cook Islands, Niue and Tuvalu. Even though the deployments were successful, we learned lots of valuable lessons from issues with TCP and high latency satellite links.

The team at the University of Auckland, MIT in the U.S and the University of Alborg in Denmark wrote a paper on our experiences and the improvements that we have gained with NCTCP. This has been accepted at NetCod 15 and I will post a link to this when it is available at our website.

We are also currently looking for a country to perform our last deployment. One of the things we wanted to better understand is queue oscillation and NCTCP. If there is ISP out there that uses O3B or GEO with large amount of bandwidth, please email me offlist.
