The objective in this project was to build a network topology along with the loss rate stated for each link which shall later be used to evaluate and analyze self-proposed network coding strategies. During the project, we resorted to network tools such as traceroute and ping for examining a network topology. The network topology was built around a real Internet network, i.e., PlanetLab Europe – a testbed for computer networking and distributed systems research. We intend to use this network topology to develop efficient algorithms for global encoding kernel (GEK) assignment, providing support for
unequal error protection (UEP).
