This paper studies the throughput efficiency of Wireless Multi-Protocol Label Switching (WMPLS) applying data link Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ), Go-Back-N (GBN) and Selective Repeat(SR) protocols, for reliable packet transmission. The paper investigates the impact of the packet size on the throughput efficiency of the ARQ protocol for a reliable service under different conditions of a multipath fading channel. This investigation addresses the probability of receiving a correct packet. An upper bound and a lower bound for this probability are suggested in the closed-form format. A novel numerical method to calculate the optimal packet size for GBN is also proposed in this paper.
