Executive Summary

This paper describes the implementation of network coding on OpenGL-enabled graphics cards. Network coding is an interesting approach to increase the capacity and robustness in multi-hop networks. The current problem is to implement random linear network coding on mobile devices which are limited in computational power, energy, and memory. Some mobile devices are equipped with a 3D graphics accelerator, which could be used to do most of the RLNC related calculations. Such a cross-over have already been used in computationally demanding research tasks as in physics or medicine.
