Random Linear Network Coding: The Next Generation of Coding

A general introduction to Random Linear Network Coding (RLNC), Code On’s proprietary technology. RLNC’s main features and unique attributes are discussed through examples. Its potential impact on telecommunications and information technology is illustrated through some of its major applications.

Random Linear Network Coding: A Tutorial

A technical tutorial introducing Code On’s proprietary technology, Random Linear Network Coding (RLNC). The main focus of the paper is to introduce RLNC’s unique technical features compared to conventional and widely deployed forms of coding. A number of use cases and technical references are also provided.

5G White Paper

This white paper provides an overview of the contributions of Random Linear Network Coding to emerging 5G networks. A number of brief use-cases are presented covering key applications such as wireless connectivity, media delivery, mesh networking, storage networks, content distribution, peer-to-peer networking, and security.

RLNC as a Network – Layer Code

This white paper explains why coding at the physical-layer does not replace network coding at higher layers. That coding should be done preferentially at the physical-layer is a common ansatz in communication. We show how coding with less redundancy at the PHY-layer and using RLNC at the link-layer or at the transport-layer, greatly improves performance. Interestingly, coding at the transport-layer is potentially more advantageous. The gain from using RLNC at the link/network-layer ranges from 1 dB to 2 dB. With RLNC deployed at the transport-layer, we can expect gains in excess of 3 dB.
