Abstract

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.
