In any cooperative wireless networks the presence of many mobile stations willing to forward and help in delivering information packets to the destination helps in achieving Cooperative Diversity. The real test is to make sure that the communication is Reliable. Many mobile nodes vary in size and thus having limited energy battery cells and energy scavenging abilities. This paper is on relay selection mechanisms for wireless cellular networks. The authors' mechanism selects the relays which are satisfying the conditions present at both the physical layer and also at the network layer.
