Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes used by receivers to correct transmission errors without retransmission add a considerable amount of redundant bits to data bits. The addition of redundant bits lowers the overall network throughput, thus increasing the demand for more required bandwidth. In this paper, the authors investigate and discuss various techniques used in FEC and show their effects to data communication in terms of bandwidth utilization. Additionally, they propose improvement of (2, 1, 2) convolutional encoder to (3, 2, 3) encoder.
