ABSTRACT Infrastructure wireless mesh network has been attracting much attention due to the wide range of its application such as public wireless access, sensor network, etc. In recent years, researchers have shown that significant network throughput gain can be achieved by employing network coding in a wireless environment. For further improvement of network throughput in one dimensional (1D) topology, Ono et al. proposed to use multiple antenna technique combined with network coding. In this paper, being inspired by MIMO network coding in 1D topology, the authors establish a novel MIMO network coding algorithm for a 2D topology consisting of two crossing routes. In this algorithm, multiple network coded flows are spatially multiplexed. Owing to the efficient usage of radio resource of network coding and co-channel interference cancellation ability of MIMO, the proposed algorithm shows an 8-fold gain in network capacity compared to conventional methods in the best-case scenario.

    ABSTRACT: This survey summarizes the state-of-the-art research on network coding, mainly focusing on its applications to computer networking. Network coding generalizes traditional store-and-forward routing techniques by allowing intermediate nodes in networks to encode several received packets into a single coded packet before forwarding. Network coding was proposed in 2000, and since then, it has been studied extensively in the field of computer networking. In this survey, we first summarize linear network coding and provide a taxonomy of network coding research, i.e., the network coding design problem and network coding applications. Moreover, the latter is subdivided into throughput/capacity enhancement, robustness enhancement, network tomography, and security. We then discuss the fundamental characteristics of network coding and diverse applications of network coding in details, following the above taxonomy.

    ABSTRACT: In recent years, network coding has been introduced at physical layer to increase network capacity of wireless mesh networks (WMN). In this paper, to support reliable packet relaying in WMN employing network coding, we propose an efficient retransmission scheme. The proposed scheme is efficient since it exploits the property of network coded packet header instead of using conventional schemes based on transmission of acknowledgement (ACK/NAK) packets as shown by analytic results. Benefit of the proposed scheme is furthermore verified in a one dimensional (1D) MIMO two-way relay network employing network coding. Numerical result shows that our proposed scheme can significantly improve end-to-end packet delivery ratio in the presence of lossy wireless links.
