The subject of this thesis was the verification and the implementation of a multiple
retransmission technique for the one-way asynchronous communication channel of the
Interactive Video Data Service (IVDS) system. The commercial application of the IVDS
project made reliability of the retransmission technique important. Verification of the
reliability of the technique was done using a simulator written in the C programming
language. The results of the IVDS simulator were compared to the existing statistical
model of the transmission channel. Following a favorable comparison of the statistical
model and simulator results, a prototype of the control section for the IVDS Consumer
Control Unit (CCU) was designed and constructed. This was an important step towards
the completion of the IVDS system. The CCU design defined protocols for message
format and error detection and also helped to establish an IVDS test-bed system.
