In this new approach, the authors consider the data network as a channel (in the sense of information theory) with several layers. The suggested "global" approach to coding in a network is consequently connected with other network procedures, such as protocols, and this determines complexity and originality of the problems of coding within the network. The authors distinguish different coding processes at 3 network layers (data link layer, transport layer and presentation layer) and investigate the impact of coding from one layer to another. Thus the problem of reconciliation of coding of different network layers arises and the authors suggest enlightening solutions to this problem.
