Abstract:
   Forward Erasure Correction (FEC) is a reliability mechanism that is
   distinct and separate from the retransmission logic in reliable
   transfer protocols such as TCP.  Using FEC coding can help deal with
   transfer tail losses or with networks having non-congestion losses.
   However, FEC coding mechanisms should not hide congestion signals.
   This memo offers a discussion of how FEC coding and congestion
   control can coexist.  Another objective is to encourage the research
   community to also consider congestion control aspects when proposing
   and comparing FEC coding solutions in communication systems.

   This document is the product of the Coding for Efficient Network
   Communications Research Group (NWCRG).  The scope of the document is
   end-to-end communications: FEC coding for tunnels is out-of-the scope
   of the document.
