Throughput analysis of extended ARQ schemes
Various Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) schemes have been used to combat errors that befall information transmitted in digital communication systems. Such schemes include simple ARQ, mixed mode ARQ and Hybrid ARQ (HARQ). In this study we introduce extended ARQ schemes and derive expressions for their throughput performance. We then compare their performance with mixed mode ARQ schemes where it is shown that extended ARQ schemes outperform the mixed mode ARQ schemes. We also show how the parameters for the schemes can be chosen to maximize performance.
