networking (Or connection-based, stream-oriented). A type
of transport layer data communication service that allows a
host to send data in a continuous stream to another host.
The transport service will guarantee that all data will be
delivered to the other end in the same order as sent and
without duplication. Communication proceeds through three
well-defined phases: connection establishment, data transfer,
connection release. The most common example is TransmissionControl Protocol (TCP).
