--The running of a data set through an algorithm that reduces the space required to store the data set or the bandwidth required to transmit the data set.
--The act of reconstructing a compressed header.
--High-Level Data Link Control. A bit-oriented synchronous data link layer protocol developed by International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Derived from Synchronous Data Link Control (SDLC), HDLC specifies a data encapsulation method on synchronous serial links using frame characters and checksums.
--A chain of subheaders.
--The circumstance in which a compressed and then decompressed header is different from the uncompressed header. This variance is usually due to a mismatched context between the compressor and decompressor or bit errors during transmission of the compressed header.
--Integrated Services Digital Network. A communication protocol offered by telephone companies that permits telephone networks to carry data, voice, and other source traffic.
--Modular Quality of Service Command-Line Interface. The MQC allows you to create traffic classes and policy maps and then attach the policy maps to interfaces. The policy maps apply QoS features to your network.
--Point-to-Point Protocol. A protocol that provides router-to-router and host-to-network connections over synchronous and asynchronous circuits.
--A normal, uncompressed header. A regular header does not carry a context identifier (CID) or generation association.
--Real-Time Transport Protocol. A protocol that is designed to provide end-to-end network transport functions for applications that transmit real-time data, such as audio, video, or simulation data, over unicast or multicast network services. RTP provides such services as payload type identification, sequence numbering, timestamping, and delivery monitoring to real-time applications.
--An IPv6 base header, an IPv6 extension header, an IPv4 header, a UDP header, an RTP header, or a TCP header.
--User Datagram Protocol. A connectionless transport layer protocol in the TCP/IP protocol stack. UDP is a simple protocol that exchanges datagrams without acknowledgments or guaranteed delivery, requiring that error processing and retransmission be handled by other protocols. UDP is defined in RFC 768.
