On the Capacity of Wireless Networks with Random Transmission Delay Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, we introduce novel coding schemes for wireless networks with random transmission delays. These coding schemes obviate the need for synchronicity, reduce the number of transmissions and achieve the optimal rate region in the corresponding wired model for both multiple unicast and multicast cases with up to three users under the equal rate constraint. The coding schemes are presented in two phases; first, coding schemes for line, star and line-star topologies with random transmission delays are provided. Second, any general topology with multiple bidirectional unicast and multicast sessions is shown to be decomposable into these canonical topologies to reduce the number of transmissions without rate redundancy. As a result, the coding schemes developed for the line, star and line-star topologies serve as building blocks for the construction of more general coding schemes for all netw...
