packet loss


Also found in: Dictionary, Acronyms, Wikipedia.

packet loss

The discarding of data packets in a network when a device (switch, router, etc.) is overloaded and cannot accept any incoming data at a given moment. High-level transport protocols such as TCP/IP ensure that all the data sent in a transmission is received properly at the other end. See packet switching.
