In this paper, the authors study how network coding is useful for information exchange to be scheduled among peers to achieve high network throughput and lower transmission delay in wireless network, which helps in the throughput improvement, energy efficiency and delay minimization of the network. Network coding is a technique where, instead of simply relaying the packets of information they receive, the nodes of a network will take several packets and combine them together for transmission. This can be used to attain the maximum possible information flow in a network. Network coding is a field of information theory and coding theory. Network coding has emerged as a promising information theoretic approach to improve the performance of both Peer-To-Peer (P2P) and wireless networks.
