Multilevel Coding Over Two-Hop Single-User Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, a two-hop network in which information is transmitted from a source via a relay to a destination is considered. It is assumed that the channels are static fading with additive white Gaussian noise. All nodes are equipped with a single antenna and the Channel State Information (CSI) of each hop is not available at the corresponding transmitter. The relay is assumed to be simple, i.e., not capable of data buffering over multiple coding blocks, water-filling over time, or rescheduling. A commonly used design criterion in such configurations is the maximization of the average received rate at the destination.
