Title: USE OF TINY RETRANSMISSION RESOURCE FOR PARTIAL PACKET RETRANSMISSION FOR WIRELESS NETWORKS
Abstract:
A technique includes transmitting, by a transmitter, a packet during a first time interval via a first set of frequency resources to a receiver in a wireless network; making a decision to retransmit portions of the packet to the receiver over one or more subsequent time intervals; and retransmitting, by the transmitter during each of the one or more subsequent time intervals, a portion of the packet via a second set of frequency resources, wherein each portion of the packet is a subset of the packet, and wherein each second set of frequency resources includes fewer frequency resources than the first set of frequency resources; wherein the retransmitting by the transmitter continues until an acknowledgement (ACK) is received by the transmitter from the receiver that acknowledges receipt of the packet, or a predetermined number of retransmissions of portions of the packet are performed by the transmitter.
