The message level performance of error controls in data communication on ATM network is analyzed. Three layers, "a cell"(a unit of transmission), "a block"(a unit of error controls) and "a message"(a unit of transmission of user level) are considered. The error controls treated in this paper are GBN (Go-Back-N) and FEC+GBN. The cell loss process is assumed to be the two state Markov chain considering the cell loss process in ATM networks. Numerical results show that (1) the improvement of the message forwarding delay is saturated in some environments when the interface rate becomes high, (2) FEC is efficient when the burstiness of the cell loss process is small, the message length is large and the interface rate is high.
