Optimal blocklengths are investigated for various ARQ schemes used for error control in data transmission systems in independent-bit-error and Poisson-distributed block-error channels. A number of results relating to optimum block length for various ARQ schemes are collected for easy reference. New results are obtained for some of these schemes. The product of this investigation is suggested procedures for computing optimal blocklengths. Examples are given.
