Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Informatik - Internet, neue Technologien, Note: 1,3, Fachhochschule Heidelberg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Network coding describes a technique to perform coding operations on packet contents throughout the network, increasing the information density of a single transmission and therefore increasing network throughput. This book describes the portation of an application of network coding onto an embedded linux. It therefore describes the software COPE, which is a network coding implementation based on the modular software router CLICK. This router is also introduced. Then the book explains the embedded Linux system OpenWRT and the portation of a software onto that system as well as the compilation and deployment of a new firmware image. Then the experiment and its results are explained. The work then introduces novel schemes of network coding based on the idea behind COPE. These schemes are based on the improvement of resience rather than throughput.
