This paper presents the feasibility of a wireless network coding prototype system based on time division multiple access using the global positioning system to facilitate the synchronization of wireless nodes. The authors evaluate the system throughput of a system where wireless network coding and data aggregation are jointly applied in a saturated traffic environment based on Ethernet including 1,518 and 218 bytes data lengths assuming web browsing and VoIP applications. Experimental results show that wireless network coding with aggregation improves the system throughput by approximately 1.85-fold compared to a system without wireless network coding or aggregation.
