ARQ Protocol on Mobile Communication and Networks

Prajit Paul and Subhabrata Barman

Abstract—Modified Packet Combining (MPC) scheme is an error correction scheme, which can correct double or, higher bit errors. In some earlier work, a scheme known as Packet Reversed Packet Combining (PRPC) scheme that will correct error if occurs at same bit location of erroneous copies, was studied. Both PRPC and MPC scheme are believed to offer higher throughput and better error correction capability at high bit error rate (BER) and large packet size only. Exact analysis was performed to substantiate this claim of higher throughput and better error correction capability in high as well as in low bit error rate (BER) for large and medium packet size. To combat high bit error rate some researches proposed to use Error Correction Code (ECC) in place of Error Detection Code (EDC) in ARQ scheme. But no conclusive result is found to justify the idea in terms of throughput. The current investigation is an attempt to explore the basic gap. In this paper, we investigate the exact analysis of both PRPC and MPC in a Modified way over Conventional PRPC, and report the findings thereof. We propose a combined protocol of Modified PRPC and MPC, and find that it will offer higher throughput and better error correction capability at high and low BER with medium and large packet size as we have used MPC (Modified Packet Combining) scheme with PRPC (Packet Reverse Packet Combining) scheme in a Modified way by combining BEC (Backward Error Correction) with FEC (Forward Error Correction) Codes for Mobile Communication and Networks.
