Abstract

This document provides advice to the designers of digital
communication equipment and link-layer protocols employing link-layer
Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) techniques. This document presumes
that the designers wish to support Internet protocols, but may be
unfamiliar with the architecture of the Internet and with the
implications of their design choices for the performance and
efficiency of Internet traffic carried over their links.
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 channel. This document
also describes issues relevant to supporting IP traffic over
physical-layer channels where performance varies, and where link ARQ
is likely to be used.
