Wireless relaying systems have been recently considered an attractive option because of their potentials to improve the system throughput, enhance the cell-edge performance, extend cell coverage, and reduce the overall system deployment cost. As such they have been considered for the standardization of IEEE 802.16j, 16m and 3GPP LTE-Advanced. Most of the nodes in a relaying system operate in a half-duplex mode, which means that they cannot transmit and receive the signal simultaneously and act as a transmitter or receiver at the same time.
