The Impact of FEC on Mobile Multicast Power Control

Free registration required

Executive Summary

3GPP has standardized the use of forward error correction for the provision of reliable data transmission in the mobile multicast framework. In this paper, the authors present a study of the impact of application layer forward error correction on power control during mobile multicast transmission. The evaluation is performed with the aid of a novel scheme that allows the simulation of FEC impact on both streaming delivery and download delivery over a multicast session. It is important that the proposed scheme incorporates the properties of an evolved mobile network, as they are determined by the 3GPP specifications.
