Energy Consumption in Coded Queues for Wireless Information Exchange
Source: University of Tuzla
The authors show the close relation between network coding and queuing networks with negative and positive customers. They use this relation to obtain bounds on the energy consumption in a wireless information exchange setting using network coding. They consider the problem where two nodes in a wireless network need to exchange information with the help of a single relay node. By making use of the relay, node A needs to deliver all its data to node C and vice versa. Node B, therefore, has a queue of packets that need to be delivered to C and another queue of packets that need to be delivered to A.
