Placement Delivery Array Design for Combination Networks with Edge Caching.

Qifa Yan, Sheng Yang, Michèle Wigger

A major practical limitation of the Maddah-Ali-Niesen coded caching techniques is their high subpacketization level. For the simple network with a single server and multiple users, Yan et al. proposed an alternative scheme with the so-called placement delivery arrays (PDA). Such a scheme requires slightly higher transmission rates but significantly reduces the subpacketization level. In this paper, we extend the PDA framework and propose three low-subpacketization schemes for combination networks, i.e., networks with a single server, multiple relays, and multiple cache-aided users that are connected to subsets of relays. One of the schemes achieves the cutset lower bound on the link rate when the cache memories are sufficiently large. Our other two schemes apply only to resolvable combination networks. For these networks, the new schemes perform closely to the currently best-known coded caching schemes for a wide range of cache sizes while having significantly reduced subpacketization levels.
