Replication and Elimination functions of DetNet [RFC8655] may result in out-of-order packets, which may not be acceptable for some time- sensitive applications. The Packet Ordering Function (POF) algorithm described herein enables to restore the correct packet order when replication and elimination functions are used in DetNet networks.
