The Maximum Length notification allows communicating AEs to limit the size of the data for each P-DATA indication. Each DICOM AE defines the maximum PDU size it can receive on this Association. Therefore, different maximum lengths can be specified for each direction of data flow on an Association. This notification is required. Figure D.3-2 illustrates the Maximum Length notification.
Note: For complete specification see PS 3.8.
