We presented a definition of a burst error channel using a Markov model in a previous paper . This paper described a throughput analysis method of a hybrid automatic repeat request (ARQ) under the burst error channel using the three-state Markov model. The hybrid ARQ was studied for the random and burst error correction codes as the forward error correction (FEC) code, and multiframe rejection (MREJ) as the ARQ. The throughput efficiency was obtained with both an infinite buffer memory and a finite buffer memory. The applicable range of the burst error channel has been clarified for the hybrid ARQ using random and burst error correction codes.
