Influence of incremental redundancy on the performance of TCP in enhanced general packet radio service

Abstract

The incremental redundancy mechanism defined for enhanced general packet radio service (EGPRS) (also known as type-II hybrid ARQ) is considered here. The optimum packet combining strategy is identified and is then used to assess the performance of transmission control protocol/Internet protocol in the transmission of bulk data over an EGPRS system. The influence of other key system operating parameters is also assessed and a set of optimal operating parameters is derived and discussed.
