Erasure channels like computer networks are of great importance. Due to the large amount of packet retransmission that takes place in the currently existing methods to combat bit losses in erasure channels, they are either inefficient or time consuming. Through this paper, the authors propose a Modified Luby Transform (MLT) coding scheme to efficiently combat bit losses on transmitted data over computer networks, while eliminating the need for retransmission. The simulation and implementation results of the proposed MLT code confirm the efficiency of the encoding scheme. The MLT code is tested on a live computer network and applicability of the code in real world situations is verified and confirmed.
