Performance Analysis of Decode-and-Forward Incremental Relaying Cooperative-Diversity Networks Over Rayleigh Fading Channels

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Cooperative-diversity networks have recently been proposed as a way to form virtual antenna arrays without using collocated multiple antennas. Cooperative-diversity networks use the neighbor nodes to assist the source by sending the source information to the destination for achieving spatial diversity. Regular cooperative-diversity networks make an inefficient use of the channel resources because relays forward the source signal to the destination every time regardless of the channel conditions. Incremental relaying cooperative diversity has been proposed to save the channel resources by restricting the relaying process to the bad channel conditions only.
