Quick UDP Internet Connection (QUIC) is a recent protocol initiated by Google that merges the functions of HTTP/2, TLS and TCP directly over UDP. It can replace the traditional HTTP/TLS/TCP stack and the IETF has chartered a working group to standardize it. QUIC encrypts all data and most protocol headers to prevent interferences from middleboxes. However, the current QUIC design still assumes a single-path flow. This talk presents Multipath QUIC, a QUIC extension that enables a QUIC connection to simultaneously use different network paths. This ability to spread data over several networks provides bandwidth aggregation and better support for mobility scenarios. I will first discuss the design of the proposed solution. Based on our implementation based on quic-go, I will then show a comparison of performance between (Multipath) QUIC and (Multipath) TCP in a various environments covering large network parameter spaces (bandwidth, delay, buffer sizes, losses). Finally, I will discuss several new usecases opened by Multipath QUIC, some being unpractical with (Multipath) TCP.
