14 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Encoding Assume n original packets m 1, m 2, …, m n generated by one or several sources; Each packet consists of K symbols from GF(2 s ): m i =(m i,1,m i,2,…,m i,K ); At a certain node, encoding vector g=(g 1,g 2,…,g n ), with each g i єGF(2 s ); Information vector x=g 1 m 1 +g 2 m 2 +…+g n m n =(x 1,x 2,…,x K ), where x k =g 1 m 1,k +g 2 m 2,k +…+g n m n,k ; Encoding can be performed recursively (to already encoded packets); Encoding vector can be deterministic or random (in which case it is transmitted together with the information vector).

15 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Decoding Solving a linear system of equations with n unknowns (the original messages m 1, m 2, …, m n ); With random network coding, the probability of linearly dependent combinations becomes small if the field size 2 s is sufficiently large; Therefore, only (few more than) n information vectors need to be received in order to retrieve the original packets.

16 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Max-Flow Min-Cut Assume each link has unit capacity. Min-cut is two for both receiver nodes. Max-flow is two for each receiver node. Not achievable simultaneously by traditional routing! Achievable simultaneously by network coding! This works for all multicast networks: The upper bound on the obtainable data rate imposed by the smallest maximum flow from the source to some receiver can be achieved simultaneously for all receivers using coding.

30 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Throughput versus Cost xy x xy y x+y Throughput 2 Cost/symbol 4.5 Throughput 1 Cost/symbol 4 xx xx

31 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Goal To construct a network code that enables the source to control the throughput, achieving the minimum possible cost at all throughputs.

32 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Model and Definitions Acyclic directed graph Capacity and cost on edges Multicast traffic Single network use Throughput: number of symbols transmitted Cost (per symbol) = (Σ costs of all edges used)/throughput Operating point: throughput-cost pair

33 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Network Coding at Minimum Cost For a given throughput, find minimum-cost subgraph satisfying min-cut conditions: [Lun et al., IEEE IT, 2006] Construct a code on the subgraph: [Jaggi et al., IEEE IT, 2005] [Ho et al., IEEE IT, 2006] Multi-rate network coding: one subgraph for each operating point! Challenge: Find a code that works on all subgraphs

34 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Related Work Variable-Rate Linear Network Coding, [Fong & Yeung, IEEE ITW, 2006]: Variable throughput Single subgraph Changing set of receivers, i.e., those nodes in the network that have the min-cut satisfied Network Coding for Link Failures, [Koetter & Medard, IEEE/ACM TN, 2003], [Jaggi et al., IEEE IT, 2005]: Single throughput Different subgraphs

35 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Outline of Code Construction The source selects the throughput and encodes the data using one set of coding vectors. Take size of global coding vectors equal to maximum supported throughput. At lower throughputs, fix unused symbols at zero. The chosen throughput is communicated to other nodes in the network, e.g., by including it in the header of a packet. Intermediate nodes know the subgraphs used at each operating point and perform the same linear coding operation at all throughputs, i.e., there is only one set of local coding vectors. Receivers know which symbols are used at each operating point and can decode accordingly.

37 Presentation at IEEE AWSITC, June 4, Main Result Theorem: For any network, a multi-rate code can be constructed achieving the minimum possible cost at all throughputs. Proof (sketch): Consider transfer matrices for each receiver for each operating point; Require all transfer matrices to have full rank; Consider product of all determinants; Follow [Koetter & Medard, IEEE/ACM TN, 2003] algebraic framework.
