Performance analysis of distributed raptor codes in wireless relay networks
Paper in proceeding, 2014

In this paper, we propose a distributed network coding (DNC) scheme based on the Raptor codes for wireless relay networks (WRNs), where a group of source nodes communicate with a single sink through a common relay network in a multi-hop fashion. At the sink, a graph-based Raptor code is formed on the fly. After receiving a sufficient number of encoded packets, the sink begins to decode. The main contributions of this paper are the derivations of upper and lower bit error rate (BER) bounds for the proposed Raptor-based DNC scheme.
