Abstract

   This document is the product of the Network Coding Research Group
   (NWCRG).  It summarizes a recommended terminology for Network Coding
   concepts and constructs.  It provides a comprehensive set of terms in
   order to avoid ambiguities in future Network Coding IRTF and IETF
   documents.  This document is intended to be in-line with the
   terminology used by the RFCs produced by the Reliable Multicast
   Transport (RMT) and FEC Framework (FECFRAME) IETF working groups.
