reliable communication
Jump to user comments
Communication where messages are guaranteed to reach their
destination complete and uncorrupted and in the order they
were sent. This reliability can be built on top of an
unreliable protocol by adding sequencing information and
some kind of checksum or cyclic redundancy check to each
message or packet. If the communication fails, the sender
will be notified. Transmission Control Protocol is a
reliable protocol used on Ethernet.
