Abstract

This document describes a mechanism that allows Signalling Compression (SigComp) implementations to report precise error information upon receipt of a message which cannot be decompressed. This negative feedback can be used by the recipient to make fine- grained adjustments to the compressed message before retransmitting it, allowing for rapid and efficient recovery from error situations.
