Efficient Broadcasting Using Network Coding and Directional Antennas in MANETs

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper considers the issue of efficient broadcasting in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) using network coding and directional antennas. Network coding-based broadcasting focuses on reducing the number of transmissions each forwarding node performs in the multiple source/multiple message broadcast application, where each forwarding node combines some of the received messages for transmission. With the help of network coding, the total number of transmissions can be reduced compared to broadcasting using the same forwarding nodes without coding.
