Performance Analysis of Cooperative Networks with Inter-Relay Communication Over Nakagami-m and Rician Fading Channels
Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) based transmission protocols have been proposed previously by various research communities, however, the analysis of these protocols are not considered for both Nakagami-m and Rician fading channels with inter-relay communication. The authors present a detailed and profound analysis of TDMA based protocols for cooperative networks with inter-relay communication over both Nakagami-m and Rician fading channels considering path loss effect. The Gain of the network over various locations of the relays is also presented. Bit Error Rate (BER) and Cooperation Gain are the parameters used to analyze the network.
