Abstract: The network coded wireless networks are composed of nodes which broadcasts their location to all the other nodes. The conventional broadcasting allows each and every node to opportunistically forward the received packets. For network coding approach every node eavesdrops the packets that were transmitted from their adjacent nodes, aggregates the received packets and forwards the resulting packets to its adjacent nodes. The ultimate focus is to minimize the transmissions for energy conservation. The research is related to the network coded based neighbor broadcasting with a consideration that all the inter user medium are slow fading and the received energy is compared to the broadcasted energy. A cross layer technique that understands the network coding at the network layer and uses the MAC layers forwarding and arrangement choices for deciding the ways for network coding of packets. The results of simulation depicts that the network coded systems utilizes less energy as compared to the conventional opportunistic approach.
