Low-rate coding using incremental redundancy for GLDPC codes

Abstract : In this paper we propose a low-rate coding method, suited for application-layer forward error correction. Depending on channel conditions, the coding scheme we propose can switch from a fixed-rate LDPC code to various low-rate GLDPC codes. The source symbols are first encoded by using a staircase or triangular LDPC code. If additional symbols are needed, the encoder is then switched to the GLDPC mode and extra-repair symbols are produced, on demand. In order to ensure small overheads, we consider irregular distributions of extra-repair symbols optimized by density evolution techniques. We also show that increasing the number of extra-repair symbols improves the successful decoding probability, which becomes very close to 1for sufficiently many extra-repair symbols.
