Unequal Erasure Protection (UEP) is an attractive approach to protect data flows that contain information of different priority levels. We analyze two optimal UEP schemes that achieves the capacity of the Broadcast Erasure Channel. One family implements UEP thanks to a dedicated packetization scheme, as it is the case with Priority Encoding Transmission (PET) [1], while the other family uses a dedicated signaling scheme, as is the case with the Generalized Object Encoding (GOE) [2]. These two solutions have the main benefit of being compatible with existing standardized Application Layer FEC (AL-FEC) schemes, which is a major practical benefit. Through a careful modeling of both proposals, we show that the average decoding delay of both approaches are equivalent in infinite and finite length conditions, while GOE is simpler in terms of concepts and processing load at the decoder.
