Wireless LAN, FEC, RED, and NS-2.
In this paper, we used an adaptive FEC algorithm for
wireless networks which is an extension of the traditional
FEC schemes. The algorithm uses the advantages of
traditional FEC schemes, which normally fixes the errors
occurring within the information packages before they
occur. Using simulation experiments, our work has shown
that the adaptive FEC algorithm improves the
performance of the system by dynamically tuning FEC
strength to the current amount of wireless channel loss.
