A first network node (eNB) is configured to receive (404), from a second network node (UE), channel performance indicator values regarding a serving cell, and estimate (404) a number of network-coded packets based on the received channel performance indicator values, such that the estimated number of network-coded packets defines a number of network-coded packets required by the second network node for successful detection of payload data. The second network node is configured to generate (402) the value of a channel performance indicator regarding the serving cell, and cause (403) transmission of the generated value of the channel performance indicator to the first network node, wherein the generated value of the channel performance indicator directly or indirectly indicates the number of network-coded packets required by the second network node for successful reception of payload data that is an input to network coding.
