Content-Aware Instantly Decodable Network Coding (IDNC)
in D2D Networks
By: Prof. Ashfaq A. Khokhar
Illinois Institute of Technology, USA
In this work, we will explore Content-Aware IDNC for cooperative communication among cooperating mobile devices by taking into account the realistic constraints, such as strict deadline, bandwidth, or limited energy. Content-Aware IDNC exploits additional information about content, particularly when not all packets have the same importance and not all users are interested in the same quality of content. Content-Aware IDNC improves quality and network coding opportunities jointly by taking into account importance of each packet towards the desired quality of service (QoS). We will present different formulations of this problem and explore possible solutions.
This work is being jointly pursued with: Yasaman Keshtkarjahromi, Hulya Seferoglu, and Rashid Ansari (all at UIC)
