block numbering

Block numbering is used to assign a sequential number to each data block. The number assignment is intended to prevent messages from being duplicated and to prevent misdirected or lost messages from being identified. This allows blocks that have not been received to be requested again. The function is usually implemented in the transport layer, but it can also be located at any other higher level.
