Claim of US Patent No. 10,686,557

1. A method for providing forward error correction for at least a portion of each of a plurality of data packets, the at least a portion of each of the plurality of data packets comprising a relationship between data, across packets, in each of the plurality of data packets, the method comprising:receiving the plurality of data packets, the plurality of data packets being encoded in a first error correction coding scheme;
identifying a second error correction coding scheme based on the relationship, the relationship being a non-random, predictable relationship, providing additional information about contents of the data packets, between the data, across packets, in each of the plurality of data packets; and
performing error correction on noisy packets by decoding the at least a portion of each of the plurality of data packets using the second error correction coding scheme, using the additional information about contents of the data packets.
