Errors caused by residual errors

Asked by Friedrich on 2014-02-05

Hi,

In the rfc3095, when the compressed header contains a CRC, the CRC will catch the bad header with a probability
dependent on the size of the CRC. When ROHC does not detect the bad header, it will be delivered to upper layers.

I am wondering if our algorithm has a way to deal with the residual errors that could be passed to the decompressor. Do the residual errors happen often? When?

Thanks,
Friedrich

The amount of residual errors highly depends on the lower layers: their nature (wired Ethernet, Wi-Fi, LTE, DVB-S/S2/RCS...) and the external disturbances (damaged wire, bad weather...).
