In my experience "TP" is indeed a popular abbreviation. I've seen it not
only in white papers, but in blue, green, pink, and gray at least, not
to mention in various patterns--even scented.

(Sorry, couldn't resist...)

If feasible, I'd concur with those urging standard abbreviations for
data rates or, since this is after all presumably the company creating
the application involved, perhaps even expanding the field a bit to
accommodate the longest necessary term. That should be simple enough for
the programmers without resorting to an awkward and potentially
confusing term.
