This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Design and implementation of data-link control protocol for CBR traffic in wireless ATM networks ' This paper presents a data link control (DLC) framework for transporting constant bit rate (CBR) traffic over wireless ATM links. The purpose of DLC in wireless is to provide error-free services to the higher layers by recovering corrupted cells. A selective reject (SREJ) automatic repeat request (ARQ) based DLC protocol is used for CBR error recovery. For an ARQ based scheme, higher recovery rates can be achieved with larger cell transfer delay, caused by cell retransmissions. Since cell transfer delay and DLC recovery rate both can translate to user-perceivable quality of service (QoS), it is important for the DLC to strike a balance between these two, depending on the application's requirements. To achieve this in our protocol, the retransmission procedure for a CBR cell is constrained to complete within a recovery time interval which is specified by the application at call-setup time. Also, a novel jitter removal algorithm, which reduces the cell delay variation caused by cell loss and retransmissions, is incorporated as a part of the DLC protocol. The proposed protocol is implemented on NEC's WATMnet prototype system. The implementation and its experimental results are reported for illustrating the performance and feasibility of the presented CBR DLC protocol. The experimental results show that the DLC protocol can be successfully applied for error recovery of CBR traffic on a per-connection basis. These also indicate that the DLC can be programmed to attain a desirable tradeoff between cell transfer delay and cell recovery rate.
