  packet
  data packet
  
     The unit of data sent across a network.  "Packet" is a
     generic term used to describe a unit of data at any layer of
     the OSI protocol stack, but it is most correctly used to
     describe application layer data units ("{application
     protocol data unit", APDU).
  
     See also datagram, frame.
