This report documents the development of an analytical
model of both throughput and power consumption
in a wireless mesh network with the Alice and Bob
topology. A MeasuringTool have also been designed
to measure the actual power consumption in the network.
The analysis shows that applying network coding saves
energy for high load scenarios. This is validated with the
MeasuringTool.
The model derived and measurements achieved have
demonstrate that network coding gives even benefits for
the case of low load.
