QUIC is an emerging transport protocol, offering multiple advantages over TCP. Yet, to fully unleash QUIC’s potential, a paradigm shift is needed in existing network infrastructure. We propose a novel 0-RTT-aware load balancing algorithm. 0-RTT is crucial for web performance, particularly on mobile networks. Our load balancing algorithm ensures 0-RTT while maintaining near-optimal load balancing performance.

Through extensive simulations, using both synthetic and real-world traffic traces, we demonstrate that the proposed load balancer achieves near-optimal load balancing performance, faster time-to-first-byte, and faster completion time than the least loaded, power-of-two-choices, and maximum session affinity load balancing policies.
