The problem of transmission of data along communication channels at rates of the order of 107 bits/s is considered. The transmission strategy is discussed and the advantages of data blocking with error detection are indicated. Under this strategy, detailed analysis is given of the time lost in data transmission, in which the presence of optimum values of the block size are revealed. Examples of typical distributions of optimum block size are given as a function of several parameters of interest; the question of channel efficiency is also discussed.
