This paper presents a design for an end-to-end transport protocol for multi-homed end systems that pools the communication resources of multiple networkpaths to support a single communication session. This approach offers improved performance and resilience compared to communicating over a single path. Compared to previous efforts, deployability in the current commercial Internet, i.e., in the presence of middleboxes, filtering and restricted connectivity, was a key driver for the design of the Resource Pooling Protocol (RPP).
