Real-Time Reliable Multicast Using Proactive Forward Error Correction

  title={Real-Time Reliable Multicast Using Proactive Forward Error Correction},
  author={Dan Rubenstein and Jim Kurose and Don Towsley},
Real-Time reliable multicast over a best-effort service network remains a challenging research problem. Most protocols for reliable multicast use repair techniques that result in significant and variable delay, which can lead to missed deadlines in real-time scenarios. In this paper we present a repair technique that combines forward error correction (FEC) with automatic repeat request (ARQ). The novel aspect of the technique is its ability to reduce delay in reliable multicast delivery by… CONTINUE READING
