   Taxonomy of Coding Techniques for Efficient Network Communications
              draft-irtf-nwcrg-network-coding-taxonomy-07

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 IRTF and IETF documents on
   Network Coding.  This document is in-line with the terminology used
   by the RFCs produced by the Reliable Multicast Transport (RMT) and
   FEC Framework (FECFRAME) IETF working groups.
