Providing reliable and efficient networking services in wireless ad hoc networks is extremely challenging due to high mobility and unstable wireless nature: a significant number of packets can be corrupt or lost. To increase the reliability in packet erasure networks, various coding schemes have been proposed. Network Coding (NC) and Erasure Coding (EC) are such well-known coding techniques recently considered to be used for multicast communications. Both schemes are able to encode original packets into a potentially infinite data stream of encoded packets. Receivers can reconstruct the original packets once they have collected a certain number of encoded packets.
