<networking> (Or connection-based, stream-oriented). A type of transport
layer data communication service that allows a host to send data in a continuous
stream to another host. The transport service will guarantee that all data will
be delivered to the other end in the same order as sent and without duplication.
Communication proceeds through three well-defined phases: connection
establishment, data transfer, connection release. The most common example is
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP).
Opposite of connectionless, datagram. See also circuit switching, packet
switching, virtual circuit.
