Service data units submitted to a SAP are processed in the order of submission.
processing order is maintained for service data units submitted to different SAPs. CCSDS 132.0-B-1 Page 2-3 No September 2003 CCSDS RECOMMENDATION FOR TM SPACE DATA LINK PROTOCOL NOTE – Implementations may be required to perform flow control at a SAP between the
service user and the service provider. However, CCSDS does not make any
recommendations for a scheme for flow control between the user and the
The followings are features common to all the services defined by this Recommendation:
a) unidirectional (one way) services: one end of a connection can send, but not receive,
data through the space link, while the other end can receive, but not send;
b) unconfirmed services: the sending user does not receive confirmation from the
receiving end that data has been received;
c) incomplete services: the services do not guarantee completeness, but some services
may signal gaps in the sequence of service data units delivered to the receiving user;
d) sequence-preserving services: the sequence of service data units supplied by the
sending user is preserved through the transfer over the space link, although there may
be gaps and duplications in the sequence of service data units delivered to the
NOTE – This Recommendation assumes that these services are provided at the end points
of a space link. However, this Recommendation makes no assumptions
concerning how these end points are composed or configured either on-board a
spacecraft or in a ground system. In a ground system, the services defined by this
Recommendation may be extended or enhanced with Space Link Extension
Services (reference [B5]).
