Frame check sequence : refers to the extra error-detecting code inserted to a frame in a communications protocol.

Error-detecting codes : are additional data added to a given digital message to help us detect if an error occurred during transmission of the message.

Checksum : is a count of the number of bits in a transmission unit that is included with the unit so that the receiver device can check to see whether the same number of bits arrived or not.
