— Header compression saves bandwidth, but it also introduces error propagation whenever packets are lost. In this work we propose to use error correcting codes on the compressed packet headers. The result is an overall system that maintains most of the bandwidth savings of header compression and yet is robust with respect to errors. The key to achieving(More)
This paper proposes a system using convolutional codes to mitigate error propagation in packet header compression. Convolutional codes are a class of Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes, and their use is motivated because on uni-directional links loss of even one packet can render subsequent packets useless. A combination of two interleavers is used to(More)
Network traffic statistics show that, because shorter packets predominate in many applications, headers impose a considerable overhead. But the header content is largely repetitive, thus in the past 15 years many packet header compression techniques have been proposed and studied. Header compression is based on differential methods, which introduces error(More)
The RTCWeb working group in the IETF is tasked with developing standards that will ensure interoperability between web browsers establishing rich communications sessions. This working group is tasked with delivering the specifications necessary to establish real-time transport sessions between browsers (e.g. those based on real-time protocol, i.e. RTP).(More)
