CORMEN: Coding-Aware Opportunistic Routing in Wireless Mess Network
These network coding improves the network operation beyond the traditional routing or store-and-forward, by mixing of data stream within a network. Network coding techniques explicitly minimizes the total no of transmission in wireless network. The Coding-aware routing maximizes the coding opportunity by finding the coding possible path for every packet in the network. Here the authors propose CORMEN: a new coding-aware routing mechanism based on opportunistic routing. In CORMEN, every node independently can take the decision whether to code packets or not and forwarding of packets is based on the coding opportunity available.
