BECN

Backward Explicit Congestion Notification

BECN

(In topic `Network Architectures`) BECN is an acronym for Backward Error Congestion Notification. In congested Frame Relay networks, BECN informs the transmitting device that the network is congested and that it should ‘back off` to enable improved throughput.  (see Frame Relay and FECN)

BECN

Backward explicit congestion notification. Bit set by a Frame Relay network in frames traveling in the opposite direction of frames encountering a congested path. DTE receiving frames with the BECN bit set can request that higher-level protocols take flow control action as appropriate. Compare with FECN.
