Abstract

Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) protocols are a very important functionality in computer networks, which steer information transmission between network devices. Its knowledge is essential for students in Computer Science. In this way, simARQ simulator is an effective learning tool, which gives students an environment for self-training. It has Demo and Simulation modes, and a useful simulation analysis tool. simARQ has been successfully compared to other widely used ARQ simulator, through a survey among a group of students.
