Title: Communication apparatus and communication method

Abstract: A correlation memory section 105 stores a prescribed table in which each control data is grouped for each kind of it (for each message unit) to be correlated to each other. A control data synchronization section 104 successively accumulates input control data into a control data accumulation section 106. At this time, the control data synchronization section 104 refers a table stored in the correlation memory section 105 to correlate a plurality of control data for each group for accumulating the control data. By such operation, a plurality of control data are multiplexed for each group, and the control data are handled by the group as one data. Then, a control data processing section 107 generates multiplexed control data that are multiplexed for each group as one packet, and the control data processing section 107 transmits the generated packet to a communicating party.
