In this paper, the authors explain about the performance of Decode and Forward Incremental Relaying (DF-IR) in the presence of multiple dissimilar sources of Co-Channel Interference (CCI) at both, the relay and the destination. In particular, they consider the case where all links experience flat Rayleigh fading with Kr and Kd sources of CCI affecting the relay and the destination, respectively. The performance is studied in terms of three performance metrics, the normalized average spectral efficiency, the outage probability, and the error probability. The derived results unveil the incurred losses due to CCI. The accuracy of these results was verified using intensive Monte Carlo simulations.
