End-to-End Network Throughput Enhancement Through Physical-Layer Network Coding

Physical-Layer Network Coding (PNC) is a promising technique that has great potentials for improving the achievable data rates of end-to-end flows through higher packet transmission rates, thereby increasing the overall network throughput.

In this paper, we study the performance of the PNC transmission techniques for unidirectional end-to-end flows in multi-hop wireless networks, and compare it with that of the traditional transmission techniques. We first derive the bit-error rate (BER) that the PNC transmission technique achieves, and then using that, we evaluate the network throughput measured as the aggregate throughput of multiple unidirectional end-to-end flows. Using simulations, we show that PNC increases the overall achievable network throughput, especially under medium to high signal-to-noise ratios.
