Bounds on the Network Coding Capacity for Wireless Random Networks Conference Paper uri icon


  • Recently, it has been shown that the max flow capacity can be achieved in a multicast network using network coding. In this paper, we propose and analyze a more realistic model for wireless random networks. We prove that the capacity of network coding for this model is concentrated around the expected value of its minimum cut. Furthermore, we establish upper and lower bounds for wireless nodes using Chernoff bounds. Our experiments show that our theoretical predictions are well matched by simulation results.
