Abstract

We propose an energy-efficient resource allocation framework suitable for multicast service delivery over 3GPP's Long Term Evolution Advanced Single Frequency Network evolved Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Service networks. A key aspect of the considered system model is that multicast communications are delivered according to the Random Linear Network Coding (RLNC) principle. The proposed optimization framework aims at minimizing the transmission energy associated with the delivery of a set of multicast flows. The goal is achieved by jointly optimizing the transmission power and the RLNC scheme of each flow. Furthermore, we present a heuristic strategy that can efficiently find a good-quality feasible solution of the presented resource allocation model.
