Performance Analysis and Adaptive Power Control for Block Coded Collaborative Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors derive theoretical bit and frame error rate expressions for Decode-and-Forward (DF) collaborative networks containing M users, employing a variety of block codes over a Rayleigh block faded channel. With the aid of these expressions, they explore the performance of adaptive power control for such systems. This extends previous work by optimizing power allocation for all relay and direct channels. They further extend their work to a variety of cooperation mechanisms and they conclude that power control can greatly benefit a DF collaborative network in a fading environment.
