In this paper, we present a model for evaluating the effectiveness of (2, 1, m) convolutional-code-based packet-level FEC, under the condition of a limited buffer size in which the number of available packets is restricted for recovery. We analytically derive the post-reconstruction receiving rate, i.e., the probability that a lost packet is received or recovered before the buffer limit is reached. We show numerical examples of the analytical results and demonstrate that the buffer size at the same level as m gives sufficient recovery performance.
