Delay-Limited Cooperative Communication With Reliability Constraints in Wireless Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors investigate optimal resource allocation for delay limited cooperative communication in time varying wireless networks. Motivated by real-time applications that have stringent delay constraints, they develop dynamic cooperation strategies that make optimal use of network resources to achieve a target outage probability (reliability) for each user subject to average power constraints. Using the technique of Lyapunov optimization, they first present a general framework to solve this problem and then derive quasi-closed form solutions for several cooperative protocols proposed in the literature
