In this paper, we investigate the throughput efficiency of the Go-Back-N ARQ protocol on parallel multiple channels with burst errors. We assume that packet errors occur according to a two-state Markov chain on each channel. The effect of the decay factor of the Markov chain on throughput efficiency is evaluated based on the results of numerical analysis.
