Instantly Decodable Versus Random Linear Network Coding: A Comparative Framework for Throughput and Decoding Delay Performance

This paper explains the tension between throughput and decoding delay performance of two widely-used network coding schemes: Random Linear Network Coding (RLNC) and Instantly Decodable Network Coding (IDNC). A single-hop broadcasting system model is considered that aims to deliver a block of packets to all receivers in the presence of packet erasures. For a fair and analytically tractable comparison between the two coding schemes, the transmission comprises two phases: a systematic transmission phase and a network coded transmission phase which is further divided into rounds.
