As we know the TCP/IP protocol today, it is a serial based protocol. You can only send and receive once at a time. This new one is a parrallel approach. Funny, hard drives are moving to serial, and the internet to parrallel.


For many years computer scientists have been proposing protocols to improve the efficiency of distributed computing systems, but Park asserts that his method works with greater efficiency for time-critical applications. The current protocol is generally known as the Order-based Deadlock Prevention Protocol, according to Park. While the performance results of the new protocol have impressed analysts, they note that other more critical issues holding back collaborative Internet computing and Web services need to be addressed first.
