Using FASP with IBM Aspera High-Speed Add-on for Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows (V4.8.0 or later)
IBM Aspera High-Speed Add-on for Connect:Direct® for Microsoft Windows uses FASP (Fast and Secure Protocol) network transport to transfer files over high bandwidth and high latency network connections.
At low latency it performs similarly to TCP/IP. However, as latency and packet loss increase, unlike TCP/IP, its performance does not degrade, and FASP continues to take advantage of all the available bandwidth.
IBM Aspera High-Speed Add-on for Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows supports interoperability with Connect:Direct for UNIX (V4.3.0 or later) and Secure Proxy (V126.96.36.199 or later).
Note: Secure+ is used to secure FASP transfers exactly the same way it is used for TCP/IP transfers.
