This paper addresses the problem of inter-session network coding to maximize throughput for multiple communication sessions in wireless networks. We introduce virtual multicast connections which can extract packets from original sessions and code them together. Random linear network codes can be used for these virtual multicasts. The problem can be stated as a flow-based convex optimization problem with side constraints. The proposed formulation provides a rate region which is at least as large as the region without inter-session network coding. We show the benefits of our technique for several scenarios by means of simulation.
