Comtech EF Data introduced the VersaFEC Forward Error Correction. The unit provides maximum coding gain with the lowest possible latency to support cellular backhaul and other latency-sensitive voice, video and data applications.
It is a system of short-block, low latency Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes designed to support latency-sensitive applications, such as cellular backhaul over satellite. Designed to provide maximum coding gain while minimizing the end-to-end latency, VersaFEC provides an alternative to existing LDP and DVB-S2 codes.
