The Importance of Forward Error Correction

 What is FEC? FEC is a mathematical algorithm that is applied to the signal prior to being transmitted in order to improve data reliability. This is accomplished through the process of adding redundancy to the content prior to transmission.  The receiver system also runs a FEC algorithm with the received data, detects and corrects errors automatically prior to the signal be presented to the output. This scheme allows for no retransmis...
