Abstract

Sending data over a wireless connection can be both time consuming and expensive. This invention operates at the transport level, not the protocol or application level, to reduce the amount of data transported. The data reduction can be realized through the number of messages transported and the size of the messages transported through transporting only the selected and necessary message fields. Through transport layer data reduction, further cost savings can be realized in addition to the already known techniques of data reduction at other levels. While this invention deals with reducing the amount of data transported, this is not simple data compression, but there is nothing to preclude the use of data compression in conjunction with this invention to further realize the desired cost savings.
