The goal of this research was to completely describe Network Coding and Random Linear Network Coding functionality and operation; in addition, an added prospect of including prefix bits upon base RLNC protocol was proposed. The purpose of the added prefix bits was to obtain more control over an otherwise blind broadcast scheme in base RLNC. The addition of the prefix bits builds a decision-making algorithm check based upon the induction of knowledge of the entire system with each packet broadcasted from any respective node. These decision-making algorithms were able to produce efficiency constraints on the Source and respective Forwarding Nodes to increase throughput and QoS (Quality of Service).
The means by which the data to substantiate this theory was collected was through simulation models created in C++. Two models were created. One such model described base RLNC, while the second depicted RLNC behavior with added prefix bits. The final data showed some improvement with the second model with prefix bits as compared to the first model depicting base RLNC.
