Executive Summary

Due to the high round trip delay in satellite systems, the retransmission of lost packets using conventional ARQ schemes is performed in a very rigid manner and after a very long time of the initial packet transmission. This results in a high average packet delay and packet drop rate in broadcast streaming applications. Moreover, conventional ARQ schemes are generally inefficient in broadcast scenarios. In this paper, the authors propose a network coded ARQ protocol that performs both proactive and reactive packet retransmissions in hybrid satellite systems. The proposed protocol employs a network coding approach to generate efficient proactive retransmission packets without the knowledge of lost packets.
