Transmission control is an important
issue in the Internet or other computer networks
today. The retransmission scheme in TCP cannot
have the best throughput in the network scenarios with more wireless links or complicated topologies.
Some related works proposed the solution by network coding.
Network coding is suitable for generate the redundant data for error correction.
In this paper, we discussed such solutions. Then
we proposed the loss-rate driven coding, LRC, for transmission control.
The proposed mechanism can minimize the coding operations.
Applying LRC to TCP will have lower power consumption and lower computing resource requirement.
