Business description: iReady Corporation is the foremost expert in silicon based TCP/IP stack processing solutions. The company's patented TCP/IP stack technology uniquely provides full transport off-load for ultra high performance Ethernet networking. Dramatic increases in bandwidth speeds will transform networking into a low latency, high throughput computing infrastructure. A new computing model, called transport offload, is the key technology that makes this possible by overcoming the overhead associated with processing the TCP/IP protocol stack at gigabit speeds. iReady's hardwired TCP/IP solution, based on our patented architecture, solves this fundamental problem.
