Google’s Quic transmission protocol closer to widespread adoption

Quic, Google’s planned replacement for Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), seems to finally be on its way. In fact, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) published Quic as a standard for the worldwide network earlier this week, Tech Xplore reports. This protocol might replace TCP, which has dominated Internet transmission since 1974. Online services and web browsers have been experimenting with this technology for years, but now that the IETF has officially released the standard, global users might be more inclined to transition to Quic. Google, which revealed Quic as a trial addition to its Chrome browser in 2013, reported that the protocol promises to decrease the wait time for web search results by eight per cent on PCs and by four per cent on phones. Quic appears to lessen the buffering time for YouTube videos by 18 per cent on PCs and 15 per cent on mobile devices. Quic collaborates with TCP and IP (Internet Protocol) to send data from one computing device to another across the web.
