Abstract

Network coding has received great attention for its ability to greatly improve the performance of wireless networks. However, there still lacks of study to optimize the packet size for maximizing the throughput performance of network coding enabled multicast in wireless networks. In this paper, we study network coding enabled multicast from a base station to multiple receivers using random linear network coding. We build a network throughput model and derive the optimal packet size for maximal multicast throughput. Simulation results verify the high accuracy of our analysis results.
