Cooperative Network Coded ARQ Strategy for Broadcast Networks

Tutgun, Rasit
A novel cooperative automatic repeat request (ARQ) method with network coding is proposed for broadcast networks where single source node broadcasts multiple packets to multiple destinations. Upon a failed transmission, multiple relays cooperate with the source node at the retransmission phase, where network coding is used to combine multiple lost packets. A random access mechanism is employed where retransmission is done according to back-off counters. The proposed method employs the back-off mechanism to achieve space diversity by punishing the nodes which fail at previous retransmissions, and to reduce the number of retransmissions by giving priority to nodes having opportunity to employ network coding. The proposed method is compared with network coded ARQ without cooperation and traditional ARQ using Monte Carlo simulations for different channel settings. The effect of channel correlation is investigated where correlation is modeled as a finite-state Markov model. Simulation results show that the proposed use of cooperation and network coding for ARQ improves throughput performance when relay channels' conditions are better than the channels between source and destinations. It is also observed that, the proposed strategy exploits cooperation and space diversity to reduce the performance degradation due to correlation.

Relay Selection for Efficient HARQ-IR Protocols in Relay-Assisted Multisource Multicast Networks
Quoc-Tuan Vien, Quoc-Tuan Vien; Nguyen, Huan X.; Shah, Purav; Ever, Enver; Duc To, Duc To (2014-05-21)
This paper investigates relay selection for reliable data transmission in relay-assisted multisource multicast networks (RMMNs) where multiple source nodes distribute information to a set of destination nodes with the assistance of multiple relay nodes. Hybrid automatic repeat request with incremental redundancy (HARQ-IR) is used and supported by either a physical-layer network coding (PNC) or an analog network coding (ANC) technique employed at the relays. By deriving efficiency metrics of the HARQ-IR prot...

We study a pull-based status update communication model where a source node submits update packets to a channel with random transmission delay, at times requested by a remote destination node. The objective is to minimize the average query-age-of-information (QAoI), defined as the age of information (AoI) measured at query instants that occur at the destination side according to a stochastic arrival process. In reference to a push-based problem formulation defined in the literature where the source decides ...
Differential network coding in wireless networks Telsiz aǧlarda farksal aǧ kodlamasi
Özdemir, Özgür; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2009-10-29)
In this paper a three-terminal communication scenario where two users exchange information by employing differential binary modulation and network coding via a relay is considered. The transmission is divided into three slots in time where the first and second slots are allocated to the transmission of differential encoded data of the users. After demodulation, the relay broadcasts the bit-wise XOR-ed and differential encoded packet to the users in the third slot. The optimum detector and a simplified decis...
Performance analysis of reliable multicast protocols
Çelik, Coşkun; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
IP multicasting is a method for transmitting the same information to multiple receivers over IP networks. Reliability issue of multicasting contains the challenges for detection and recovery of packet losses and ordered delivery of the entire data. In this work, existing reliable multicast protocols are classified into three main groups, namely tree based, NACK-only and router assisted, and a representative protocol for each group is selected to demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of the correspond...
TCP-Peach++: Enhancement of TCP-Peach+ for satellite IP networks with asymmetrical bandwidth and persistent fades - (Invited paper)
Fang, J; Akan, OB (2005-01-01)
In this paper, an improvement to TCP-Peach+, called TCPPeach++, is proposed to improve the throughput performance for satellite IP networks with asymmetrical bandwidth and persistent fades. The delayed SACK scheme is adopted to address the problems due to bandwidth asymmetrical satellite links. A new protocol procedure, Hold State, is developed to address the link outages due to persistent fades. The simulation results show that TCP-Peach++ improves the throughput performance during rain fades and addresses...
