Capacity Analysis of Two-Hop Virtual MIMO Systems in a Poisson Field of Nodes

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors investigate the performance of two-hop virtual multiple-input-multiple-output systems with random location of nodes. In the scenario, they consider the communication between source and destination through the use (following a decode-and-forward approach) of a relay node. A number of ancillary nodes, distributed according to a Poisson point process, are supposed to be distributed around source, relay and destination, with the possibility to create clusters of cooperating nodes. Random fluctuations are accounted for in the channel model which considers both slow and fast fading.
