Coding and congestion control in transport

Tue, 05/26/2020 - 12:30 by François Michel


FEC coding is a reliability mechanism that is distinct and separate
from the loss detection of congestion controls. Using FEC coding can
be a useful way to deal with transfer tail losses or with networks
having non-congestion losses. However, FEC coding mechanisms should
not hide congestion signals. This memo offers a discussion of how
FEC coding and congestion control can coexist. Another objective is
to encourage the research community to also consider congestion
control aspects when proposing and comparing FEC coding solutions in
communication systems.
