Energy Efficiency of Network-Coding Enabled Mobile Small Cells

G. Koudouridis, H. Lundqvist, L. Hong & X. Gelabert

Energy efficiency becomes increasingly important due to the limited battery capacity in wireless devices while at the same time user throughput requirements are relentlessly increasing. In this paper, we study an energy efficient cooperation scheme which employs network coding to enhance the energy efficiency for mobile devices. Herein we propose that the mobile devices are clustered into mobile small cells with one of the mobile devices acting as a group head with basic transceiver,...
