In the recent past, we have witnessed a surge of interest in applying packet switching technology to the transmission of digitized voice traffic. Although this technology has been used primarily as an efficient means of carrying computer communication traffic, recent advances in high speed, high capacity switching fabrics and progress in digitization of analog waveform and speech processing have created great potential for the handling of both voice and data in a common integrated packet switched network. While voice and data packets can use network resources uniformly, they impose dissimilar demands and requirements on the network protocols. One such case is the error control procedure. Data applications require error-free transmission, and most existing standard protocols provide this capability.
