sequenced packet protocol

Abbreviated as SPP, a networking protocol that provides reliable transport of packets with flow control in environments where multiple transport connections are established. SPP uses destination ID reference numbers to identify the target end of a transport connection; sequence numbers to keep transmitted packets in the order in which they were sent; and acknowledge numbers that are assigned to the last packet in a sequence that a destination received properly to indicate that the transmission is complete and successful.
