In this paper, we investigate the performance of a wireless relay network with multiple transmission sessions, in which multiple groups of source nodes communicate with their respective destination nodes via a shared wireless relay network. A multiple transmission session model with network code division multiplexing (NCDM) scheme is proposed to remove the inter-session interference at each destination. The fundamental idea of the NCDM scheme takes advantage of the property of G⊙ HT=0 of the low-density generator matrix (LDGM) codes. Based on the analysis of the NCDM scheme, we investigate the relationship among the equivalent received signal vector, the number of sessions and the column weight of the generator matrix. New code design criteria for the construction of the generator matrix is proposed. We further evaluate the multiple transmission session model with the proposed NCDM scheme in terms of throughput and complexity. Our evaluation demonstrates that the proposed scheme not only has a linear computational complexity, but also shows a similar error performance in the AWGN case and a considerable throughput improvement compared with its counterpart, which is referred to as a serial session scheme, where groups of source nodes communicate with their respective destinations in a time division manner.
