3GPP has standardized the use of forward error
correction for the provision of reliable data transmission in the
mobile multicast framework. In this paper we present a study
of the impact of application layer forward error correction on
power control during mobile multicast transmission. The
evaluation is performed with the aid of a novel scheme that
allows the simulation of FEC impact on both streaming
delivery and download delivery over a multicast session. It is
important that the proposed scheme incorporates the
properties of an evolved mobile network, as they are
determined by the 3GPP specifications.
