Paper Abstract

We consider queueing behavior for transmission of variable-length packets over a slotted unreliable transmission line. Transmission reliability is obtained using either the stop-and-wait or the go-back-N retransmission protocol. The typical bursty nature of errors on the transmission medium is captured by means of an N-state Markov modulated Bernoulli process. Results include the probability generating function of the packet delay which allow to obtain expressions for performance measures such as mean packet delay and delay variance. As a numerical example, we investigate the protocols under consideration in the case errors are modeled by mean of a Markovian on/off process.
