We study the issue of quality of service (QoS) for real-time traffic over a wireless channel deploying automatic repeat request (ARQ) error control. An analytical model has been derived to evaluate the queueing related loss and the wireless channel related loss. In contrast to the previous work, this model quantifies the interaction between the network layer and the physical layer, and then it enables the admission controllers of wireless networks to improve the utilization while satisfying the traffic QoS constraints through cross-layer design techniques.
