Review of Network Coding Based Routing Algorithm for Wireless Mesh Networks

Network coding has been widely acknowledged as an effective approach to improve the throughput of Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) and a few network coding based routing algorithms for wireless mesh networks have been proposed. This paper investigates the state of the art of network coding based routing algorithms for WMNs that exploits network coding in routing algorithms. In addition, the taxonomy of network coding based routing for WMNs is presented and the typical network coding based routing algorithms for WMNs are reviewed by analyzing their specific characteristics, advantages and drawbacks. Some open problems in designing network coding based routing for wireless mesh networks are discussed finally.
