Peplink Forward Error Correction (FEC)

21/10/2020

Available from firmware version 8.0 for Peplink routers with a SpeedFusion WAN Smoothing license.

Introduction

When using multicast applications on lossy WAN connections the performance can suffer. To overcome these problems Peplink introduced WAN smoothing, but WAN smoothing has an overhead of at least 50%.
This is not always desirable when there isn’t enough bandwidth available. Peplink has therefore introduced Forward Error Correction in Firmware 8.0
FEC is a cousin of WAN smoothing but it consumes less data. It is useful for bandwidth sensitive applications such as mobile streaming.

What is SD-WAN?

06/10/2020

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a revolutionary way to approach the simplification of branch office networking and assure optimal application performance by using centrally controlled and managed WAN virtualization.
Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN delivers increased network agility and cost reduction. Software-Defined WAN has its roots in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the underlying principle of which is to abstract the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network.
