Software Library

Code On licensee Steinwurf has developed a commercial-grade
Random Linear Network Coding (RLNC) software library called Kodo.

RLNC coding speedup

Speed gains over the fastest competing library varied from 23%-260% for encoding and 13%-90% for decoding. The highest gains were seen at larger block sizes, indicating growing speed enhancements as the industry moves towards larger block sizes.

RLNC’s main selling point is its unique capability to enable next-generation information infrastructure by inherently providing unique features such as multipath transport, seamless distributed storage, and robust streaming. Nevertheless, Steinwurf’s benchmarking results illustrate RLNC’s readiness for deployment as an alternative to existing storage and transport codes.
