1. A method for optimizing Radio Link Control (RLC) headers comprising:

  • implementing, by one or more processors, a segment offset (SO) field in a RLC header to designate resegmented packets for lost protocol data units;

    implementing, by the one or more processors, a length indicator (LSO) for the SO field in the RLC header, to further accommodate a variable size of the SO field in the RLC header; and

    implementing, by the one or more processors, a Last Segment Flag (LSF) in the RLC header to identify a last segment of a protocol data unit (PDU).
