Abstract

Wireless communication is inherently vulnerable to errors from the dynamic wireless environment. Link layer packets discarded due to these errors impose a serious limitation on the maximum achievable throughput in the wireless channel. To enhance the overall throughput of wireless communication, it is necessary to have a link layer transmission scheme that is robust to the errors intrinsic to the wireless channel. To this end, we present Interleaved-Forward Error Correction (I-FEC), a clever link layer coding scheme that protects link layer data against random and busty errors. We examine the level of data protection provided by I-FEC against other popular schemes. We also simulate I-FEC in Bluetooth, and compare the TCP throughput result with Bluetooth's integrated FEC coding feature. We show that I-FEC consistently and significantly outperforms other link layer coding schemes by providing an impressive amount of protection against heavy channel burst errors.
