sliding-window in Technology

A method of flow control in which a receiver gives a transmitter permission to transmit data until a window is full. When the window is full, the transmitter must stop transmitting until the receiver advertises a larger window.
TCP, other transport protocols, and several link-layer protocols use this method of flow control.
