 for reliable communication
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  reliable communication
      Communication where messages are guaranteed
     to reach their destination complete and uncorrupted and in the
     order they were sent.  This reliability can be built on top of
     an unreliable protocol by adding sequencing information and
     some kind of checksum or cyclic redundancy check to each
     message or packet.  If the communication fails, the sender
     will be notified.  Transmission Control Protocol is a
     reliable protocol used on Ethernet.
