Modern end-hosts are generally equipped with more than one network interfaces. IETF responded to proliferation of multi-homed end-hosts and proposed MPTCP to allow concurrent use of multiple interfaces in data transfers. Basically, MPTCP uses regular TCP flows (called as MPCTP subflows) to send/receive application data over multiple paths. This approach benefits from the strengths of TCP (e.g., its high deployment), but also suffers from its weaknesses (e.g., its vulnerability to reorderings).
