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.

    Люблю читать, слушать музыку. Люблю хорошие фильмы для подумать. Вообще я интроверт, поэтому с людьми схожусь трудновато, но если таки это случилось, то общаюсь, чему- то учусь и, возможно, что- то даю взамен.
