Caching and Delivery via Interference Elimination Academic Article uri icon


  • 1963-2012 IEEE. We propose a new coded caching scheme where linear combinations of the file segments are cached at the users, for the cases where the number of files is no greater than the number of users. When a user requests a certain file in the delivery phase, the other file segments in the cached linear combinations can be viewed as interference. The proposed scheme combines rank-metric codes and maximum distance-separable codes to facilitate the decoding and elimination of the interference and also to simultaneously deliver useful contents to the intended users. The performance of the proposed scheme can be explicitly evaluated, and we show that it can achieve improvement over known memory-rate tradeoff achievable results in the literature in some regime; for certain special cases, the new memory-rate tradeoff points can be shown to be optimal.
