ABSTRACT
The proposed fault-tolerant data communication setup has two main features: the consecutive transmission scheme that improves the reliability of message transmission, and the adaptive buffer management scheme that prevents message losses due to buffer overflow. The two features together reduce message retransmissions, and produce better channel reliability and system performance. The simulation data confirm that the adaptive buffer management scheme is indeed an effective reliability measure to prevent data overflow.
INDEX TERMS
