Cooperative Communication becomes apparent as a new scheme of diversity in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks. Topology control and network capacity are important upper layer issues in considering the performances of a MANETs in cooperative communication. In this paper, the authors put forth the concern of topology control with aspiration of maximizing the network capacity by proposing a scheme called MSRCC (Spatial Reuse Maximizer in Cooperative Communication). They are going to perform the simulation using NS2. It combines both the Spatial Reuse Maximizer (MaxSR) that focuses on converging to an operating point minimizing network capacity and Capacity Optimized Cooperative Topology Control method that focuses on improving the network capacity by considering both physical layer cooperative communication and upper layer argument such as network capacity and topology control.
