Network Coding (NC) has shown the promise of significant throughput improvement to wireless networks. Meanwhile, Multiple Packet Reception (MPR) has been proved as an efficient way to combat the Multiple Access Interference (MAI) problem and to make wireless networks truly scalable. Their outstanding advantages to wireless network performance have attracted considerable research interests. In this paper, the authors find that the greedy use of MPR may take side effect to NC and degrade the overall network throughput for All-To-All (A2A) communication in two-way relay networks. To fully explore the potential of both MPR and NC, the transmission should be carefully scheduled.
