APPLICATIONS OF RATELESS CODES
This dissertation proposes to use the unique properties of rateless codes to improve existing reliable communication systems having delayed feedback. Presented is a framework for using rateless codes to reduce latencies when feedback is delayed. A method is shown to calculate the packet reassembly latency in a selective repeat and rateless coded system. Another method is described estimating the number of packets sent using rateless codes while reducing latency. Findings show rateless coding can make notable improvements in reducing latency over the selective repeat method. Furthermore, this ...
