In recent year's wireless networks has become a necessity rather than a luxury. Wireless networks suffer in providing high throughput for high end applications like multimedia etc. Network coding is proposed to improve the throughput of the network. In this paper, the authors apply network coding technique at the relay in wireless environment which is based on a simple XOR. It brings out the benefits of network coding over store and forward technique. The results highlight that using a simple XOR based network coding increases the normalized stable throughput compared to traditional store and forward routing.
