Streaming services that use TCP have increased; however, throughput is unstable due to congestion control caused by packet loss when TCP is used. Thus, TCP control to secure a required transmission rate for streaming communication using Forward Error Correction (FEC) technology (TCP-AFEC) has been proposed. TCP-AFEC can control the appropriate transmission rate according to network conditions using a combination of TCP congestion control and FEC. However, TCP-AFEC was not developed for wireless Local Area Network (LAN) environments; thus, it requires a certain time to set the appropriate redundancy and cannot obtain the required throughput. In this paper, we demonstrate the drawbacks of TCP-AFEC in wireless LAN environments. Then, we propose a redundancy setting method that can secure the required throughput for FEC, i.e., TCP-TFEC. Finally, we show that TCP-TFEC can secure more stable throughput than TCP-AFEC.
