This memo specifies a message-oriented extension for Multipath TCP (MPTCP) which aims to serve high-bandwidth and real-time applications. By introducing a message mapping to MPTCP, Message- Oriented MPTCP (MO-MPTCP) attaches some message features like boundaries, priority and dependency to bytestream. With such message-oriented information, MPTCP senders can avoid the waste of transmission resources and improve the transmission efficiency.
