We consider wireless multicasting over lossy links and explore the benefit of cooperative strategies in which multicast receivers exchange messages. A key feature of the problem considered here is that the source downlink channel has a higher loss rate than the channels between pairs of receivers; this feature implies that completion time may be reduced by offloading transmissions to receiver-receiver links and taking advantage of their higher reliability. Three strategies are analyzed and… CONTINUE READING
