A 100Gbps data link layer with a frame segmentation and hybrid automatic repeat request

Abstract

This paper presents simulation results of the data link layer for 100Gbps wireless communication. A frame aggregation and segmentation, forward error correction codes, and a hybrid automatic repeat request scheme are in the scope. The frame segmentation suffers from the acknowledge frame length currently, and this aspect has to be improved. We favor Reed-Solomon codes because of relative high throughput and sufficient error performance comparing to convolutional codes. We verified hybrid automatic repeat request scheme in two versions. Additionally, we proposed some possible improvements for the mentioned techniques. The frame format and simulation models (two state Markov chains) are explained in details. At the end parameters of the data link layer and their influence on the performance is done. A physical layer turnaround time seems to be the leading factor. Finally, we mentioned a hardware accelerator processor for the Reed-Solomon codes.
