This article first presents several packet loss profiles collected during 802.11b multicast transmissions carried out under variable reception conditions (mobile and fixed receivers). Then, an original approach consisting in mapping a posteriori some error control mechanisms over these observations is presented. This approach allows to evaluate the performance of these mechanisms according to their parameters and various channel properties. It is shown in particular that relatively simple mechanisms based on retransmissions and/or error correcting codes of small length achieve very good performance in this context (92% of the best performance).
