The Efficient Short Remote Operations Organization
Efficient Short Remote Operations
Home of Internet RFC-2188
A foundation for development of efficient protocols
When TCP is too much and UDP is too little
Reliability for Wireless Data when efficiency matters
ESRO protocol provides reliable connectionless remote operation services on top of UDP (or any other non-reliable connectionless transport service) with minimum overhead. ESRO protocol supports segmentation and reassembly, concatenation and separation as well as multiplexing for service users (applications).
The Efficient Short Remote Operations (ESRO) service is similar to and is consistent with other Remote Procedure Call services. The emphasis of ESRO service definition and the ESRO protocol is on efficiency. ESRO is designed specifically with wireless network (e.g., CDPD) usage in mind.
ESRO.org is an open organization for the development and maintenance of the ESRO protocol. ESRO.org also facilitates interoperability testing among implementations of ESRO, and promotes the use of products and services based on ESRO.
ESRO is intended to be a patent-free protocol. To this end, ESRO.org fully subscribes to the patent-free principles and procedures of the Free Protocols Foundation.
