RTSE: Reliable Transfer Service Element
Reliable Transfer Service Element (RTSE), an ISO application layer protocol, provides for the reliable transfer of bulk data by transforming the data into a string of octets, then breaking the string into segments and handing each segment to the Presentation Layer for delivery. Checkpoints are established between segments. Through the services of the Presentation Layer, RTSE uses the activity management services of the Session Layer to manage the transfer of the collection of segments that make up the bulk data.
