  • We develop an algorithm that allows an ARQ protocol to dynamically optimize the packet size based on estimates of the channel bit‐error‐rate. Our algorithm is particularly useful for wireless and satellite channels where the bit‐error‐rates tend to be relatively high and time variable. Our algorithm uses the acknowledgment history to make estimates of the channel bit‐error‐rate, based on which the optimal packet size can be chosen. We develop a Markov chain model for the analysis of the system… CONTINUE READING
