The RaptorQ code is the most advanced standardised fountain code. Its properties make it very attractive for forward error correction, offering great reliability even at low overheads (i.e., for a small amount of repair information), but also admirable encoding and decoding performance. Since the code is relatively recent and the standard is complex, we are in the process of developing the first public domain implementation of RaptorQ (still a prototype). In the paper, we start by verifying the… CONTINUE READING
