Energy-Delay Considerations in Coded Packet Flows

The authors consider a line of terminals which is connected by packet erasure channels and where random linear network coding is carried out at each node prior to transmission. In particular, they address an online approach in which each terminal has local information to be conveyed to the base station at the end of the line and provide a queueing theoretic analysis of this scenario. First, a genie-aided scenario is considered and the average delay and average transmission energy depending on the link erasure probabilities and the Poisson arrival rates at each node are analyzed.
