Cooperative Space-Time Codes With Opportunistic Network Coding

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Cooperative communications has emerged as one of the most efficient way of exploiting spatial diversity in wireless communications. Cooperative communications is a strategy where users, besides transmitting their own information, also relay re-encoded version of other users' information to a common destination. In this paper, the authors investigate a scheme called Space-Time (ST) coded cooperation with opportunistic network coding, which further enhances the cooperative communications benefits. In this paper, two cooperating users using ST codes are taken. A third user, which is not demanding any service during the transmission of cooperating user, is used to send network coded message to the destination.
