Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

Opportunistic routing significantly increases unicast throughput in wireless mesh networks by effectively utilizing the wireless broadcast medium. With network coding, opportunistic routing can be implemented in a simple and practical way without resorting to a complicated scheduling protocol. Traditionally, due to the constraints of computational complexity, a protocol utilizing network coding needs to partition the data into multiple segments and encode only packets in the same segment.
