During those two days, The IETFers team in Seoul and the UCL students team worked to contribute at the enhance of the socket API for Multipath TCP. This API, already improved by Benjamin Hesmans , has the potential of enabling new use cases for Multipath TCP by allowing application developpers to control the establishment and the utilisation of the Multipath TCP subflows.

The organizers of the IETF 97 highlighted the participation of these two teams for their Open Souce contribution and issued them the best overall award for their effort.

Congratulation to all participants !
