Dual-IP layer architecture for native IPv4 and IPv6 support Improved Network Performance Troubleshooting Improved performance via hardware acceleration and autotuning Greater extensibility and reliability through rich APIs Completely manageable through Group Policy

Receive Window Autotuning Automatically senses network environment and adjusts key performance settings Allows increase of the size of the TCP/IP send / receive window

Windows Filtering Platform Provides filtering capability at all layers of the TCP/IP protocol stack Integrates and provides support for next-generation firewall features

Receive Side Scaling Previous Windows operating systems limits receive protocol processing to single CPU RSS resolves this issue by allowing network load from a network adapter to be balanced across multiple CPUs

Policy-based Quality of Service Prioritize or manage the sending rate for outgoing network traffic Both DSCP marking and throttling can be used together to manage traffic effectively
