The cost of transmitting data, in terms of equipment, use of public communications links, etc., is considerable. Under these conditions, major efforts have naturally been directed towards optimising transmission by investigating the:
occupation of lines (traffic optimisation);
reduction of transmitted volume (data compression); and
use of efficient protocols (protocol optimisation).
