Abstract

See full text

Methods and nodes are provided herein that can generate reliable acknowledgements within the time-frame required to transmit a single message over a decoupled connection so as to meet the real-time requirements of the CEC protocol. Specifically, there is provided a method in a communication system, the communication system comprising a first device, a second device, a first node and a second node, the first and second nodes being connected via a decoupled connection, the method comprising sending a plurality of data packets from the first device to the second device via the first and second nodes; on receiving a data packet from the first device, providing an acknowledgement for said data packet from the first node to the first device; wherein the acknowledgement provided to the first device corresponds to an acknowledgement provided to the first node from the second device in respect of a data packet preceding said data packet.
