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 network coding, LRC, for transmission control. The proposed mechanism can minimize the coding operations. As a result, applying LRC to TCP will have lower power consumption and lower computing resource requirement.
