On Network-Error Correcting Convolutional Codes Under the BSC Edge Error Model

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The performance of CNECCs under the BSC edge error model has been analyzed using theoretical bounds and simulations. A sufficient upper bound on the edge cross-over probability pe has been obtained, so that if pe is below this bound, the complexity of analysis can be reduced greatly by considering only single edge network-errors. Codes with better distance spectra and those with good slopes are seen to perform well under different conditions on the cross-over probability. A lower bound on the slope of any convolutional code is also obtained.
