idea: EoIP for high latency/lossy connections => Forward Error Correction

Sun Jul 29, 2018 11:09 pm

Hello,

I found UDPspeeder on https://github.com/wangyu-/UDPspeeder: "A Tunnel which Improves your Network Quality on a High-latency Lossy Link by using Forward Error Correction."
I would like to suggest a similar feature for EoIP tunnels. What about an addon which you can simply activate/deactivate Forward Error Correction for a connection? Is there anything on the roadmap?

What do you think?

Regards

With abandoned Metarouter this seems to be a nice feature request.

FEC is common on networks such as satellite comm's.
That said, it will be CPU intensive, especially over EoIP.
Noting that TCP knows when frames have not been received and windowing of the frame. I would image that using a smaller TCP window size is the better option.
As for UDP( Voip / Gaming packet ), by the time FEC gets around to it, its probably not worth the processing time!
