The Radio Link Control (RLC) protocol of Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) provides a link layer reliability that could mitigate the effects of the hostile radio propagation channel on packet data transmission. The RLC standard provides several mechanisms and associated parameters that determine the workings of this reliability scheme. In this paper, the impact of some of these schemes and parameters on the performance of FTP file downloads is investigated. The investigations are carried out using a real time emulation platform, which makes the results from this study more realistic than simulation or simplified analytical studies as the overall End-2-End performance is analyzed involving real world protocol implementations.
