OpenFEC ( ) is an open-source C-language implementation of several Application-Level Forward Erasure Correction (AL-FEC) codecs, namely: 2D-parity, Reed-Solomon (RFC 5510, ) and LDPC-Staircase (RFC 5170, ) codes. The OpenFEC project also provides a complete performance evaluation tool-set, capable of automatically assessing the performance of various codecs, both in terms of erasure recovery and encoding/decoding speed or memory consumption.

A commercial, highly optimized version of OpenFEC is available, along with an implementation of the FLUTE (RFC 6726, ) large scale content delivery protocol, and both softwares are currently commercialized by the Expway ( ) French SME. These softwares have been deployed in many places throughout the world (for instance there were more than 1.5 millions of terminals in Japan implementing the ISDB-Tmm standard, powered by our FLUTE/LDPC-Staircase softwares, in Q3-2013).

Thanks to the success of the industrial transfer of the OpenFEC and FLUTE softwares to Expway, Vincent Roca has been awarded the third FIEEC (Federation des Industries Electriques, Electroniques et Communications) applied research prize in October 2014.
