Cooperative Multicast Scheduling With Random Network Coding in WiMAX

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The Multicast and Broadcast Service (MBS) in WiMAX has emerged as the next-generation wireless infrastructure to broadcast data or digital video. Multicast scheduling protocols play a critical role in achieving efficient multicast transmissions in MBS. However, the current state-of-the-art protocols, based on the shared-channel single-hop transmission model, do not exploit any potential advantages provided by the channel and cooperative diversity in multicast sessions, even while WiMAX OFDMA provides such convenience. The inefficient multicast transmission leads to the under-utilization of scarce wireless bandwidth.
