DAI (Downlink Assignment Index) in LTE

The DL assignment carries a Downlink Assignment Index (DAI) indicating how many assignments the UE should have received so far within the current bundling window. If the UE detects that the DAI differs from the number of correctly received DL assignments, it does not send any HARQ feedback and the eNB can detect this. However, the eNB cannot know which of the transmissions was missed, and thus the whole bundle has to be retransmitted.
