In this letter, we propose two optimized multicast communication strategies based on the Network Coding principle which aim to significantly improve the performance in terms of the power cost and delivery delay associated to the transmission of the whole data flow. The proposed strategies are of special interest for service delivered in an unreliable mode. The reported numerical results clearly show that both the strategies achieve the aforementioned goals in comparison with the Random Linear Network Coding alternative.
