An Analysis of Various Parameters in Wireless Sensor Networks Using Adaptive FEC Technique
In Wireless sensor network, since the media is wireless there will be burst errors which leads to high bit error rate that affect the throughput. Wireless sensor networks drop the packets due to propagation errors that lead to retransmission traffic. This paper evaluates the effect of adaptive FEC in Wireless sensor networks. Adaptive FEC technique improves the throughput by dynamically tuning FEC depending upon the wireless channel loss. The main aim is to achieve desire throughput with less energy consumption. If the retransmission traffic decreases, that is error correction performed using adaptive FEC which maximize the throughput. The other related parameters packet delivery ratio, packet loss, delay, error rate are also being analyzed.
