The Compression Algorithm

This subsection will describes a method for compressing the headers of TCP/IP datagrams to improve performance over low speed serial links. Note that this compression is specific to TCP/IP datagrams; UDP/IP datagrams are too infrequent to be worth the bother, see [Jacobson 90].
