    Abstract

    Reliable file transfer is important in broadcast networks. In this paper, we have investigated if it is useful to extend the DAB standard with Fountain codes. To evaluate this, results from measurements in a live Single Frequency Network (SFN) were used. Our results show that the existing error correction algorithms provide already reliable file delivery, so there is no need to extend the DAB standard.
