This paper, showed an investigation on performance of the large block forward errors correction(FEC) with Drop Tail (DT) queuing policy. FEC is a technique that uses redundant packet to reconstruct the dropped packet, while Drop Tail is the most popular queue management policies used in network routers. Since the Drop Tail mainly depends on the size of the queue buffer to decide on whether to drop a packet or not, the investigation considered simulation settings with varies size of the queue buffer. Results obtained from the simulation experiments show that FEC and queue size affect the performance the network.Consequently, the qualities of multimedia applications are also affected.
