Sending policies in dynamic wireless mesh using network coding

Research output: Research - peer-reviewArticle in proceeding

Abstract

This paper demonstrates the quick prototyping capabilities of the Python-Kodo library for network coding based performance evaluation and investigates the problem of data redundancy in a network coded wireless mesh with opportunistic overhearing. By means of several wireless meshed architectures simulated on the constructed test-bed, the advantage of network coding over state of the art routing schemes and the challenges of this new technology are shown. By providing maximum control of the network coding parameters and the simulation environment to the user, the test-bed facilitates quick construction of simulation setups on top of it. The paper highlights the problem of redundant transmission of data by the overhearing nodes in a wireless mesh and by means of three simple simulation setups that are built on top of the test-bed, the paper provides a brief insight into the selection of appropriate relays. Finally, various sending policies that can be employed by the nodes in order to improve the overall transmission efficiency in a dynamic wireless mesh network are discussed and their performance is analysed on the constructed simulation setup.
