Network Coding – Based On Protection Of Many-To-One Wireless Flows


      This paper addresses the problem of survivability of many-to-one flows in
wireless   networks, such as wireless mesh networks (WMNs) and wireless sensor
networks (WSNs). Traditional protection schemes are either resource-hungry like the
(1+1) protection scheme, or introduce a delay and interrupt the network operation like the
(1: N) protection scheme. In this paper, we present a network coding-based protection
technique that overcomes the deficiencies of the traditional schemes. We derive and
prove the necessary and sufficient conditions for our solution on a restricted network
topology. Then we relax these connectivity requirements and show how to generalize the
sufficient and necessary conditions to work with any other topology. We also show how
to perform deterministic coding with {0, 1} coefficients to achieve linear independence.
Moreover, we discuss some of the practical considerations related to our approach.
Specifically, we show how to adapt our solution when the network has a limited min-cut;
we therefore define a more general problem that takes this constraint into account, which prove to be NP-complete. Furthermore, we discuss the decoding process at the sink, and
show how to make use of our solution in the upstream communication (from sink to
sources). We also study the effect of the proposed scheme on network performance.
Finally, we consider the implementation of our approach when all network nodes have single transceivers, and we solve the problem through a greedy algorithm that constructs
a feasible schedule for the transmissions from the sources.

Network Coding – Based On Protection Of Many-To-One Wireless Flows

    The MANY-TO-ONE communication mode is used in a number of networks
including two of the newer types of networks. The Wireless Mesh Networks
(WMNs), which are usually deployed to provide last-mile service to end...
