Abstract + KeywordsAbstract:

Forward error correction is divided into two categories: bit-level forward error correction and packet-level forward error correction. These two categories are unfamiliar. This study compares two alternative packet-level forward error correction codes: Raptor and Reed Solomon. Nowadays when packet-level error correction codes are mentioned these two techniques are remembered. Reed Solomon FEC codes are free so it is tested with different network conditions. Shunra Network Conditioner is used for this purpose. Raptor is costly and not used broadly yet. But several new technologies like MBMS will use Raptor. Result of this study shows the situations which Raptor and Reed Solomon are appropriate.

Keywords:

Reed Solomon, Raptor, Forward Error Correction (FEC), packet-level loss, error-free reception, Shunra Network Conditioner
