Accelerating Mobile Communications

C4S™ delivers up to 10x faster end-to-end connections
for mobile-driven applications and services.


We deliver technology for a groundbreaking wireless experience.

The problem: unreliable nature of wireless links

  • TCP is the standard communication protocol for ensuring end-to-end reliability:
  • deals well with minimal packet loss and median latency
  • however, its performance is impaired with just a small fraction of packet loss (∼0.1%)
  • TCP not designed for wireless - treats all losses as congestion, but in wireless links there are many other reasons for packet loss: interference, fading, shadowing, handover…
  • TCP’s congestion avoidance reduces its goodput even when the network is not congested
  • The result: TCP poor wireless performance
  • TCP can run more than 5x slower than it could
  • The Solution: Streambolico’s Proprietary C4S

  • Sender does not need to know which packets were received (just how many):
  • Reliability ensured by network coded transmissions
  • No need to retransmit nor acknowledge any specific packet
  • Rate control designed for wireless networks
  • Distinguishes losses due to congestion from wireless losses
  • Congestion avoidance mechanism triggered only upon true congestion
  • Ensures that the speed achieved is close to link’s capacity
  • Server-Client (Proxy) Architecture
  • Implements transparent Network Coding pipe over a UDP connection between source and sink
  • Any source, any content
  • Easy integration with external services through C4S API
  • Performance

  • Performance depends mainly on two network properties: packet loss and latency
  • C4S consistently outperforms TCP
  • For low latencies (25-75 ms) and low packet loss (0%-0.1%), between 76% and 423% faster
  • Higher latencies lead to larger improvements, with improvements from 304% to 1205% faster for 150ms of latency

  • Solutions


    C4S ensures robustness against packet loss, latency and jitter, resulting in much faster and more reliable file transfers. C4S can be easily deployed and integrated with existing cloud services and/or private content servers.
