While network coding can potentially provide significant throughput benefits by combining packets prior to forwarding them, the achievable gains are directly related to the coding opportunities at a relay that performs encoding. If the relay does not have packets destined for distinct destinations that can be encoded together, the network coding gains could be marginal. Towards increasing the opportunities for network coding, in this paper, the authors propose a queue management scheme that arbitrates the rate at which distinct transmitters send packets to a common relay which applies network coding.
