Abstract

Provider Portal for Network Applications (P4P) is a framework that enables Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and network application software developers to work jointly and cooperatively to optimize application communications. The goals of this cooperation are to reduce network resource consumption and to accelerate applications. To achieve these goals, P4P allows ISPs to provide network information and guidance to network applications, allowing clients to exchange data more effectively. This document specifies the P4P protocol operations and message formats. The goal is provide a formal specification for developers to create inter-operable implementations.
