How to get this document?

A Device-to-Device (D2D) communication between a first wireless device served by a first base station and a second wireless device served by a second base station is supported by employing an assisting node that cooperates with the first base station by creating a network code form (f(x1,x2)) of first data (x1) transmitted by the first wireless device and second data (x2) transmitted by the second wireless device. The assisting node transmits the network coded form of the first and second data to the first base station, such that the first base station is able to determine the second data (x2) based on the received first data (x1) and the network coded form (f(x1,x2)), and to transmit the second data to the first wireless device, for combining with data received by the second wireless device in the D2D communication.
