HTTP codec

HTTP helps reduce the over-the-air byte count.

HTTP codec uses TCP-Lite as an underlying transport to provide a reduction in the over-the-air (OTA) byte count. It does so by removing or byte-encoding header fields in a HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP) data stream.

On the SafeLinx Client, an HTTP codec removes or encodes HTTP request headers, transmits the HTTP data stream then reconstitutes the request headers at the SafeLinx Server before it passes the traffic to target Web servers. Then, the SafeLinx Server removes or encodes the HTTP response headers before it passes the traffic to the SafeLinx Client.
