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
