Network-Coded Macrocell Offloading in Femtocaching-Assisted Cellular Networks

Shnaiwer, Yousef; Sorour, Sameh; Sadeghi, Parastoo; Aboutorab, Neda; Al-Naffouri, Tareq


Opportunistic network coding (ONC) has shown high potential in enhancing the quality-of-experience for the clients of cellular networks using their previously downloaded files. In this paper, we study the problem of offloading clients from the macrocell base station (MBS) with the help of femtocaches (FCs) and ONC. We formulate this MBS offloading problem as an optimization problem over an ONC graph, and prove that it is nondeterministic polynomial-time (NP)-hard. Thus, we propose an...[Show more]
