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.
