Network coding, as an effective technique, can be exploited to increase the network available information flow in wired and wireless networks. The main advantage of network coding is that it allows each node or router in the network to encode the data received from multiple links and forward the mixed one to its neighboring nodes. Such a processing mode will reduce the information congestion at some nodes or links and improve the network information flow. In some scenarios, it can approach the maximum flow of the networks. In the last few years, some applications of network coding in wireless communication systems have been attracted more attention. To better exploit this promising coding paradigm, the aim of this special issue is to present a collection of high-quality research papers that report the latest research advances in wireless communication systems.
