DESCRIPTION

The Transparent Inter-Process Communication (TIPC) protocol offers total address transparency between processes which allows applications in a clustered computer environment to communicate quickly and reliably with each other, regardless of their location within the cluster.

TIPC originated at the telecommunications manufacturer Ericsson. The first open source version of TIPC was created in 2000 when Ericsson released its first Linux version of TIPC. TIPC was introduced in the mainline Linux kernel in 2006 and is now widely used both within and outside of Ericsson.
