Network coding enhances packets

What: Network coding technology

Why you should care: This is a technology, very new to the market, that allows information within transported packets to be turned into coded evidence that can be intelligently reassembled when they reach their end node--without requiring the full message to be resent. That could improve throughput, while packet identification through coding also could improve network prioritization and management.

Who's using it: According to an article in Network World, Microsoft, H-P and Intel are among the companies bringing network coding out of the labs, but makers of gear such as transport routers might have much to gain.
