   Performance was measured over link rates of 2 megabits/sec and 20 megabits/sec
   with ping times from 66 millisec (within a continent) through 200 milliseconds
   (between continents) to 600 milliseconds (satellite link).
   Test conditions included packet loss rates from .001 (one in a thousand) to .01
   (one in a hundred). These are typical losses found in long-haul
   Internet Protocol (IP) links.
