Aggressive Packet Combining Scheme In Multipath Routing To Achieve Higher Throughput And Error Correction Rates
In this paper the performance of Aggressive Packet Combining (APC) technique for multipath routing has been
studied and analyzed. In this technique the transmitter transmits a single copy of the packet which will be received by the
receiver through multiple paths. While receiving multiple copies of the packet through different transmission links it is
highly unlikely that the same error pattern will appear in all the received copies. The receiver executes Aggressive Packet
Combining (APC) technique on the received copies to detect and correct the errors. The simulation result shows that
multipath routing offers better correction capability and higher throughput than conventional APC.
