Form of packet multiplexing characterized by the identification of individual channels based on virtual circuit number. As such, connection-oriented services use addressing that is of local significance for a particular interface only.
The term connection-oriented refers to a protocol mode used in data communication networks where the sending and receiving computers in a network remain connected for the duration of the session. The computers stay in contact while the packets or frames are being sent back and forth.
The modem of interconnection in which communication proceeds through three well-defined phases: connection establishment, data trasfer, and connection releases. Examples: Internet TCP, X.25, OSI TP4, and registered letters.
a communication model in which a "virtual connection" is set up between a sending and a receiving process and is used for the transmission of a stream of data
Term used to describe data transfer that requires the establishment of a virtual circuit. See also connectionless. See also virtual circuit.
A type of network protocol that requires an end-to-end virtual connection between the sender and receiver before communicating across the network.
Model of interconnection in which communication proceeds through three well-defined phases: connection establishment, data transfer, and connection release.
Mode of communication in which a connection must be established between the transmitter and receiver before transmission of user data. This can be done by switching a circuit or by setting up a logical channel. A well-known connection-oriented protocol is TCP. Connection-oriented is the opposite of connectionless.
The data communication method in which communication proceeds through three well-defined phases: connection establishment, data transfer, connection release. TCP is a connection-oriented protocol. See also: circuit switching, connectionless, packet switching, Transmission Control Protocol.
The model of interconnection that consists of three phases: establish connection, transfer data, and release connection. TCP is a connection-oriented protocol.
A type of network service in which the transport layer protocol sends acknowledgments to the sender regarding incoming data. This type of service usually provides for retransmission of corrupted or lost data.
Describes a protocol in which a logical connection is established between the transmitting and receiving devices before transmission occurs.
A mode of communication where the data exchange is done in a 3-phase process: establishment of a connection, transfer of the data, release of the connection.
Transmissions that require a connection to be established prior to the transmission.
The data communication method in which communication proceedsthrough three well-defined phases: connection establishment, datatransfer, connection release. TCP is a connection-orientedprotocol. See also: circuit switching, connectionless, packetswitching, Transmission Control Protocol. connectionless
In telecommunications, connection-oriented describes a means of transmitting data in which the devices at the end points use a preliminary protocol to establish an end-to-end connection before any data is sent. Connection-oriented protocol service is sometimes called a "reliable" network service, because it guarantees that data will arrive in the proper sequence. Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a connection-oriented protocol.
