Joseph S. Soja, Matthew K. Luka, Iliya T. Thuku, Saad H. Girei . Comparison of Performance Efficiency of Improved Network Coding Multicast Algorithms using Data Envelopment Analysis. Communications on Applied Electronics. 5, 2 ( May 2016), 6-10. DOI=10.5120/cae2016652208
In this paper, comparison of multicast algorithms was carried out in terms of performance Efficiency using Constant Return to Scale (CRS) and Variable Return to Scale (VRS) Model. The Improved Network Coding Algorithm (INCA) which was developed to minimize the consumption of Bandwidth during multicasting was used. The aim of the INCA is achieving cost effective multicast in order to encourage group communication over the internet. Data Envelopment Analysis was applied on the results obtained from the INCA in order to determine their performance efficiency using a number of input parameters. Simulation results obtained showed that the VRS Model performs better than the CRS Model.
