Coding Aware Routing in Wireless Networks with Bandwidth Guarantees
In this paper, the authors discusses the problem of computing the maximum available bandwidth of a given path in TDMA-based network with network coding, which is a fundamental issue for supporting QoS with bandwidth requirement in wireless networks. They present a new path bandwidth computation mechanism considering physical-layer network coding. To their best knowledge, their work is the first proposal on assigning time slots with consideration of wireless interference and network coding simultaneously. their simulation experiments show that their approach produces higher throughput than the existing approach.
