This paper investigates the problem of robust stability of uncertain linear discrete-time system over network with bounded packet loss. A new Lyapunov functional is constructed. It can more fully utilize the characteristics of the packet loss; hence the established stability criterion is more effective to deal with the effect of packet loss on the stability. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness and advantage of the proposed methods.
