Network Coding Enabled 5G IAB Multi-Hop Networks for Smart Cities and Rural Communications

ASTRI and n-hop technologies Ltd. integrated the network coding technology into the 5G-IAB solution.

Network Coding enabled 5G-IAB multi-hop wireless networks ensure reliable, cost-effective, rapid deployment of public, private, rural, and disaster response networks. The solution eliminates the need for fibre cables and provides ubiquitous communication and facilitates digital economy.

Network coding is a new paradigm to convey information reliably and efficiently via the networks. n-hop’s invention of BATched Sparse code (BATS) provides a simple and easy way to implement the technology (i.e., network coding) and enables robust and efficient delivery of information.
