Estimation of the mean message delay for transport coding

P. 239-249.
Krouk E., Malichenko D.

This article considers transport coding which is a method for data transmission in a packet switching network. It uses error correcting codes at the transport layer of data network and can help to decrease the mean message delay. Evaluation of the mean message delay is important for estimation of transport coding efficiency. The existing analysis of the mean message delay uses assumption about exponential distribution of packet delay. The network model proposed by L. Kleinrock is considered in this paper. The distribution of the packet delay in Kleinrock network is not proven to be exponential. This work offers calculation of the mean message delay for Kleinrock networks without usage of the assumption about exponential distribution of the packet delay. The accuracy is checked using simulation of the Kleinrock network model. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
