Channels

Channels are the atomic connectors in Reo. A channel is a medium of communication with exactly two ends. A channel can connect two components or be composed with other channels using Reo nodes to build more complex connectors.

A channel has exactly two directed ends. There are two types of channel ends: source and sink (terminology). An source channel end accepts data into its channel. A sink channel end dispenses data out of its channel.
