HetNetwork Coding: Scaling Throughput in Heterogeneous Networks using Multiple Radio Interfaces
The explosive demand for data has called for solution approaches that range from spectrally agile cognitive radios with novel spectrum sharing, to use of higher frequency spectrum as well as smaller and denser cell deployments with diverse access technologies, referred to as Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets). Simultaneously, advances in electronics and storage, has led to the advent of wireless devices equipped with multiple radio interfaces (e.g. WiFi, WiMAX, LTE, etc.) and the ability to store and efficiently process large amounts of data.
