Mobile Request Multiplexer on the Edge

Author: Eugene Zhang.

Akamai is adding an interesting new tool to help speed up mobile access. Acknowledging the impact that latency has on the mobile browsing experience due to TCP having been designed for wired networks, they have deployed multiplexers at the edge of mobile access.
