Topological Arrangement of Nodes in Wireless Networks Suitable for the Implementation of Network Coding
In this paper, the authors discuss the physical arrangement of wireless nodes to form topologies suitable for the implementation of Network Coding. They calculate the areas in which each node must be located for a specific Network coding suitable topology to be formed. They simulate these identified topologies in OPNET Modeler to analyze the practicality of implementing network coding in these topologies. They provide results indicating the trade-off between reduced network load and higher end-to-end delay. These results indicate that implementation of the simulated topologies will be valuable for future research.
