We consider a communication system in which a transmitter is connected to a receiver through parallel channels, and the Go-Back-N ARQ scheme is used to handle transmission errors. A packet error on one channel results in retransmission of packets assigned to other channels under the Go-Back-N ARQ scheme. Therefore, the channel-grouping (a grouped-channel is used to transmit the same packet at a time), would affect the throughput performance. We analyze the throughput performance, and give a tree-algorithm to efficiently search for the optimal channel-grouping which makes the throughput to become maximum. Numerical results show that the throughput is largely improved by using the optimal channel-grouping.
