In this paper, the authors first propose a design rule for constructing a proper multilayer code for Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output(MIMO) networks.. A number of recent source coding techniques compress the source signal into multiple layers such that a destination is able to reconstruct the original signal (with some distortion) even if it has not received all the layers. Implementation of such source coding techniques in wireless networks requires the application of coding mechanisms (such as multilayer coding) which allow unequal error protection for different layers of the transmitted data.
