New Application Handles Roaming, Other Mobile Challenges

MIT researchers have created a new remote-login program called Mosh that lets users sign onto remote wireless devices and that improves mobile applications’ performance. Rather than using TCP, Mosh—a name derived from the words “mobile shell”—uses state synchronization protocol, which the MIT scientists based on the concepts used for videoconferencing. The researchers have made Mosh freely available to users and say it has been downloaded 70,000 times. They presented the work at the Usenix Annual Technical Conference in Boston earlier this month.
