Block Transfer Attempt
  • A coordinated sequence of user and telecommunication system activities undertaken to effect transfer of an individual block from a source user to a destination user. Note: A block transfer attempt begins when the first bit of the block crosses the functional interface between the source user and the telecommunication system. A block transfer attempt ends either in successful block transfer or in block transfer failure. See also block transfer time, interface, successful block transfer.
