An MPTCP Option for Network-Assisted MPTCP Deployments: Plain Transport Mode

Abstract : Because of the lack of Multipath TCP (MPTCP) support at the server side, some service providers now consider a network-assisted model that relies upon the activation of a dedicated function called MPTCP concentrator. This document focuses on a deployment scheme where the identity of the MPTCP concentrator(s) is explicitly configured on connected hosts. This document specifies an MPTCP option that is used to avoid the encapsulation of packets and out-of-band signaling between the CPE and the MPTCP concentrator. Also, this document specifies how UDP traffic, in particular, can be distributed among available paths by leveraging MPTCP capabilities.
