MIMO_NC is a recently proposed physical layer for wireless Network Coding. All previous work has analyzed this system under ideal Channel State Information (CSI). Instead, this paper studies the performance of MIMO_NC under imperfect CSI and as a function of the system parameters (rate, block size, MIMO_NC class) and compares it against classic Network Coding.
