Significantly faster communication between computers in open networks is obtained by low-cost enhancement of the open systems interconnection (OSI) transport layer. The improvement is particularly marked over new high-speed sequence-preserving networks, such as FDDIs (fiber distributed data interfaces), B-ISDNs (broadband integrated services digital networks) or DQDBs (distributed queue dual buses). The enhancement preserves the interaction of computers using only conventional standard OSI.
