Based on results from the Trilogy project, the IETF has recently started the MPTCP working group that builds a major extension to TCP that will allow hosts and servers to use TCP connections that efficiently use several paths. This extension is expected to be very useful for a large number of hosts ranging from multihomed servers to mobile devices having a WiFi and a 3G interface.
