Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is an operational research tool that is used for measuring the performance efficiency of an algorithm or organization. In this paper, DEA is applied on the simulation results of an Improved Network Coding Algorithm (INCA) with two and three performance in order to establish the performance efficiency of the two algorithms in terms of bandwidth utilization during video conferencing over a wireless network. Most researches which focus largely on determining the effectiveness of the INCA in terms of bandwidth consumption during video conferencing. However, this approach which uses DEA, the simulation results showed that the INCA with two parameters is the most cost-Efficient algorithm in terms of performance than the INCA with three parameters.
