Title : Link ARQ issues for IP traffic
Author(s) : G. Fairhurst, L. Wood
Filename : draft-ietf-pilc-link-arq-issues-01.txt
Pages : 19
Date : 02-Mar-01
This document discusses use of automatic repeat request (ARQ)
procedures as an option in the design of a link protocol, and the
impact of the use of ARQ on IP traffic travelling over the link.
ARQ is described in a general way that includes its use over a wide
range of underlying physical media, including cellular wireless,
wireless LANs, RF links, and other types of bearer channel. This
document is intended to provide guidance, and to outline matters for
consideration, for designers and implementers of future link ARQ
The material presented here is intended to be combined with the PILC
'Advice for Internet Subnetwork Designers' draft [DRAFTKARN00] to
provide a single document giving guidance to subnetwork designers.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
