Tracy D Mallory: Limited automatic repeat request protocol for frame-based communication channels. Broadcom HomeNetworking, Christie Parker & Hale, January 1, 2002: US06335933 (55 worldwide citation)

In a frame-switched network, a sender sends frames to a receiver over a possibly unreliable channel. Sent frames include frame identifiers that can be used for a limited automatic repeat request. Upon receipt of a frame, the receiver determines, from the frame identifier, if frames prior to the rece ...
