A transmission sequence number (TSN) is a 32-bit internal numerical sequence number assigned to data fragments by Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP). TSNs are independent of other stream sequence level numbers and acknowledged by receiving end points, even during sequencing gaps. Fragments are then reassembled before they are passed to SCTP clients, which ensure reliable sequenced stream delivery.
The following are TSN attributes:
