The DVB-H standard has been defined to provide digital video broadcast to mobile handheld devices. However, without a request channel, a handheld device may encounter data loss and thus it requires an additional recovery architecture to relieve this problem. In this paper, we follow the DVB-IPDC standard and propose combining a DVB-H system with an IPrelay wireless network. A handheld device losing DVB-H data can thus request the relay network for retransmission. Under this architecture, we identify two critical issues, group packet loss (GPL) and broadcast data handover (BDH). The GPL problem occurs when there are bursty requests for retransmissions of the same data with high spatial and temporal locality, causing network congestion. The BDH problem occurs when these requesting devices move out of their current serving cells. In this paper, we propose a bulk request recovery (BRR) scheme to solve these problems by exploiting spatial and temporal locality of recovery requests. Our scheme can efficiently reduce duplicate requests and schedule retransmissions of lost packets, so both GPL and BDH problems are relieved. Simulations results are also presented to verify the effectiveness of our result.
