In this paper, we exploit the characteristics of physical layer network coding (PNC) in multicast short range communication (SRC) networks. We present a scalable scenario of partially overlapping SRC networks, where collisions are resolved through indirect inter-group cooperation based on the features of PNC. Our scenario consists of a central network and several peripheral networks. In our previous work we proved that the central network presents significant gains in terms of throughput, delay and energy efficiency when applying the proposed scheme. Here we explore the impact of that scenario on the peripheral networks through a decomposition approach and we prove that they also present significant performance gains.
