|MVRCA, PPP Magnalink Variable Resource Compression Algorithm|
|Type:||PPP compression protocol.|
The MVRCA protocol is used for compressing encapsulated PPP packets.
MVRCA allows a wide range of interoperable compression implementations whose performance characteristics are a function of available CPU and memory resources.
The Magnalink variable resource compression algorithm defines a family of interoperable compression solutions with compression performance as a function of available CPU and memory resources. It addresses the need for an algorithm which can be tailored to the system on which it is implemented without compromising interoperability.
Before any MVRCA packets may be communicated, PPP must reach the Network-Layer Protocol phase, and the Compression Control Protocol must reach the Opened state.
