    One of the challenges for networks that operate according to traditional protocols is to solve the limitations of the single interface or the single path. Especially in mobile phone networks (4G, 5G, and Wi-Fi) and networks that support smart devices, it is an important question, how to take advantage of network resources or distribute traffic between paths and choose the alternative path in case the current path fails. As a result of the rapid development of applications that depend on the multipath interface, a massive increase in traffic has been occurred. The solutions and algorithms that were studied and discussed gave realistic and distinct solutions to increase throughput and reduce delays, which in turn achieves obtaining high-quality data transmission through multiple paths and thus be able to aggregate resources and reduce blocking in the network in terms of QoS (Quality of Service), QoE (Quality of Experience), which allows faster data transfer compared to cases that use a single path. In this paper, we review a set of technologies that provide multipath services (such as MPT, MPTCP, MMPTCP, AOMDV, and OAOMDV) which have been designed and proven through researchers' experiments to be helpful and promising in solving the above problems. Most of these multipath technologies are in the process of being built
