PT API versus Fastload

From a high level, what be the major differences between PT API & Fastload?
Does PT API internally use Fastload OR is it a completely new System?

My understanding is that TPT still uses the underlying protocols for FastLoad, MultiLoad, TPT, etc. It does not simply CALL fastload, but it does have the same limitations as FastLoad. You also don't need FastLoad installed to use TPT. The TPT API allows other ETL tools to take advantage of the TPT framework and language in their bulk load jobs.
