The network load is increasing due to the spread of content distribution services. Caching is recognized as a technique to reduce the peak network load by storing popular content into memories of users. Coded caching is a new caching approach based on a carefully designed content placement to create coded multicasting opportunities. Coded caching schemes in single-rate networks are evaluated by the tradeoff between the size of memory and that of delivered data. For considering the network with

In multicast delivery, a sender must communicate to intended receivers at a rate that is available to all receivers. Multicast scheduling method of determining rates to deliver are evaluated by throughput and delay in multi-rate wireless networks. In this paper, we discuss coded caching in the multi-rate wireless networks. We newly define a measure for evaluating the coded caching scheme as coded caching delay and propose a new coded caching scheme. Also, we compare the proposed coded caching scheme with conventional coded caching schemes and show that the proposed scheme is suitable for multi-rate wireless networks.
