Title: Method and system to abort data communication traffic in a communicationnetwork

Abstract: A communications network system that transmits and receives communicationframes that include a transmission status section that indicates acommunication frame transmission is aborted. In one embodiment, atransmission status section includes a cyclical redundancy check valuethat is non-matching with the information in the communication frame. Forexample, a non-matching cyclical redundancy check value is created bygenerating a one's compliment of a CRC calculated based upon theinformation within a communication frame. The communication networkincludes a wireless network, a wired network (e.g., an Ethernet network)and a data cable system that transmits a data over cable media accesscontrol (MAC) frame with an Ethernet/[ISO8802-3] type packet protocol dataunit payload.
