Abstract
We show that the maximum possible energy benefit of network coding for mul-
tiple unicast on wireless networks is at least 3. This improves the previously
known lower bound of 2.4 from [1].
1 Introduction
Traditional routing solutions for communication networks keep independent streams of
data separate. The idea of network coding is to allow nodes in the network to combine
independent data streams. Some of the benefits of network coding that have been
demonstrated are increased throughput, reduced resource consumption and increased
security, see e.g. [2] and the references therein. Our interest is in the reduction in
energy consumption in wireless networks offered by network coding.
The potential of network coding to reduce energy consumption is demonstrated
