We report the design, implementation and evaluation of Merged Hybrid ARQ with staggered FEC (MHARQ) system for video multicast over wireless LANs. MHARQ combines the advantages of receiver-driven staggered. FEC and hybrid ARQ schemes to compensate the large dynamic range of WLAN channels and to achieve high reliability, scalability and wireless bandwidth efficiency for video multicast. The FEC packets generated by a cross-packet FEC code are divided into multiple streams according to the pre-configured overhead and are transmitted in different multiple IP multicast groups. Certain FEC streams are delayed from the original video stream. The receivers dynamically join/leave the FEC multicast groups based on the channel conditions. For efficient utilization of WLAN bandwidth, FEC data for a multicast group would not be transmitted by the APs in wireless networks if no receiver joins this group. The time shift between the video stream and the FEC streams introduces temporal diversity and compensates for the client join delay and handoff interruption. In addition, when delayed FEC packets are not enough to recover the lost packets, the receivers can send a hybrid ARQ request to the video server. We design a channel estimation algorithm for a receiver to dynamically determine the delayed FEC multicast groups to join and/or send ARQ NACK to request for retransmission. Using the ORBIT radio grid testbed, we have investigated, the performance of the proposed. MHARQ system with various numbers of users per AP and different number of APs per video server. It is demonstrated via real system implementation on ORBIT that MHARQ improves wireless bandwidth efficiency and scalability for reliable video multicast, compared with existing reliable multicast schemes.
