Rate Control and Optimization Technique in Networks Coding
More recently, a new area of research has emerged called network coding that has the potential to further increase the achievable throughput by packet mixing at intermediate nodes. In this paper, the authors develop the rate control algorithm for network coding. They also develop rate control algorithm for the network with given coding. In addition to the optional rate control algorithm, they propose a decentralized Pair wise Random Coding Scheme (PRC) that is optional when a sufficiently large finite field is used for network coding. They prove that the proposed algorithms converge to the optimal solution.
