Physical-Layer Network Coding in Coded OFDM Systems with Multiple-Antenna Relay

Authors: M. Wu, D. W├╝bben, A. Dekorsy
Abstract: In this paper physical layer network coding (PLNC) in two-phase two-way relaying networks using coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission is investigated. After receiving the superimposed signal from both sources, the relay estimates the XOR-based network coded signal, which is broadcast back to the sources. Assuming that the relay is equipped with multiple antennas, the uplink transmission forms a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system, which allows the application of MIMO detection technologies. To this end, the impact of employing multiple antennas at the relay on different detection and decoding schemes under investigations is studied and compared with respect to mutual information (MI). Numerical simulations verify our theoretical analysis.
