The unit of data sent across a network.  "Packet" is a
generic term used to describe a unit of data at any layer of
the OSI protocol stack, but it is most correctly used to
describe application layer data units ("{application 
protocol data unit}", APDU).
 
See also datagram, frame.

    « Algo de mi» Si... sincero, simpático y sociable cuando hay que hacerlo... Tolerante hasta no mas poder. Me gusta leer mucho y escribir unos cuantos garabatos... Pero algo escribo. Soy amigo para el quiere un amigo!! No veo actualmente y ni veré en el futuro inédito ser mejor que nadie, me basta con ser único en la autenticidad personal. (...) (:
