QUIC – a vehicle for transport protocol evolution

The Internet is evolving from both a usage and connectivity point of view as are the underlying architecture and protocols. The quest for more responsive applications, the emergence of new security and privacy concerns and the web style of design and implementation is impacting everything from ways of working to the delivery and deployment protocols and standards. The QUIC transport protocol is a concrete example of such impact. While the IETF is working on QUIC to create a usable and deployable transport protocol ensuring the protocol evolution, 3GPP is considering using QUIC for the 5G packet core. Hence, QUIC is becoming a vehicle for transport protocol evolution and we are actively contributing to that evolution.
