   This document describes a profile for optimizing TCP to adapt so that
   it handles paths including second (2.5G) and third (3G) generation
   wireless networks.  It describes the relevant characteristics of 2.5G
   and 3G networks, and specific features of example deployments of such
   networks.  It then recommends TCP algorithm choices for nodes known
   to be starting or ending on such paths, and it also discusses open
   issues.  The configuration options recommended in this document are
   commonly found in modern TCP stacks, and are widely available
   standards-track mechanisms that the community considers safe for use
   on the general Internet.
