Our product is a TCP/IP accelerator for satellite communications please 
Also, please see for an explanation of our 
Transport layer implementation. BTW, The marketing dep has renamed T/TCP 
to fast start and we actually made some modifications to FreeBSD's T/TCP 
but the rfc1644 principles are the same.

Yes It is although we are very flexible and so a replacement might be as 
good if not better then what we have now. Especially from a code and 
security perspective. We have always appreciated BSD Engineering process 
and I believe that until we get to see FreeBSD 6.x STABLE we will be 
more then ready.
