Title: Method and system for forward error correction in packetized networks

Abstract: An improved method for forward error correction (FEC) in packetized networks. The proposed FEC method improves upon the conventional methods by reordering packets in advance to a certain depth. This allows for dispersing losses of groups of packets. Additionally, the method provides for a dynamic change of a current FEC scheme. In order to defend packet sequences from group losses, the FEC packets are dispersed within the packet stream in such a manner that the packets of the same sequence are located as far as possible from each other. The packets are mixed for minimization of losses and effective recovery.
