Cooperative communications enables efficient utilization of system communication resources, thereby allowing nodes or terminals participating in a communication network to collaborate with each other during information transmission. Cooperative communication schemes have advantageous in improving node capacity and diversity Cooperative Communication (CC) is a technology that allows multiple nodes to simultaneously transmit the same data. It is also used in improving enhancing power, network connectivity, improving communication reliability and spectrum efficiency. The three basic cooperation protocols in cooperative relaying are Decode-and-Forward (DF) and Compress-and-Forward (CF) and Amplify-and-Forward (AF).
