ACSE: Association Control Service Element
Association Control Service Element (ACSE), an application layer protocol in the OSI model defined by ISO, is designed to establish and release an application-association between two AEIs and to determine the application context of that association. The ACSE supports two modes of communication: connection-oriented and connectionless. For the connection-oriented mode, the application association is established and released by the reference of ACSE connection-oriented services. For the connectionless mode, the application association exists during the invocation of the single ACSE connectionless mode service, A UNIT-DATA.
