General Information

P_MUL is a multicast protocol adopted by the australian defence force. Multicast in the context of HF channels is faced to the problem of high bit error rates. Therefore, the use of FEC seems like a natural idea to overcome the loss of data without the burden of unnecessary retransmissions. Similarly, ARQ can improve the performance of P_MUL by selecting which data packets to retransmit. In this project, we study the performance improvments brought out by hybrid schemes combining FEC with ARQ in the context of reliable multicast.
