Error-resilient packet header compression

By: Suryavanshi, V.; Nosratinia, A.;

2008 / IEEE


This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Error-resilient packet header compression ' Full packet headers consume valuable bitrate, which is especially costly in satellite links and some terrestrial wireless links. This has motivated the compression of packet headers by exploiting their correlation via using finite-state machines. The drawback is that compression in the presence of channel errors (packet loss) may result in error propagation. We offer several designs by adapting error control codes for the requirements of packet header compression in uni-directional and bi-directional links, and explore the tradeoffs in complexity, delay, and system performance. For the bi-directional link, we propose a new design called predictive hybrid ARQ and evaluate its performance. Experiments show significant gains in link-layer throughput as well as improved application layer performance demonstrated via video transfer experiments.
