Cooperative Communication (CC) is a competent method to acknowledge the Quality of Service (QoS) communication in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs). In MANETs, mobile nodes are generally power driven by batteries with limited energy supplies therefore, these networks are commonly known as power constrained. Topology control is to resolve the transmission power nodes so as to increase network connectivity and increase the energy efficiency. To this end, this paper utilizes the CC to link disconnected networks in order to reduce transmission power of nodes with increases network connectivity.
