if this is not the right group , kindly let me know the right group
for this.

with todays growth in hardware technology i was wondering if its
possible to perform something like ZIP operation on packets (or data
part of packets at least) & then send them over network & unzip them
at receivers end & then handle them like normal packets.
it could save a lot on bandwidth .... though h/ware cost will go up.
im not sure abt whether we can run algorithms like ZIP at this level.

thanking you
