This paper proposes a new retransmission scheme for achieving high-speed transmission by reducing the retransmission delay time caused by packet loss. High-speed data packet transmission can be realized by sending user datagram protocol (UDP) packets continuously over long-distance wireless systems. The UDP characterizes connectionless communication, requiring the use of a retransmission scheme for reliable quality. However, the transmission speed will reduce with repeated retransmissions over time. The key advantage of the proposed scheme is that the retransmission waiting time can be dramatically reduced by transmitting data packets in descending order from the last data packet. It is verified via a computer simulation that the average peer-to-peer network configuration receiving time can be approximately halved and a 20% improvement in throughput with a packet error rate of 0.1 can be achieved by the proposed scheme.
