Based on Decode-and-Forward (DF) relaying scheme, the exact closed-form expression of the Outage Probability (OP) for the home Mobile-To-Mobile (M2M) cooperative networks over N-Nakagami fading channels is derived in this paper. Then the OP performance under different conditions is evaluated through numerical simulations. The numerical simulation results coincide with the theoretical results well, and the accuracy of the theoretical results is verified. The simulation results showed that: the fading coefficient, the number of cascaded components, the relative geometrical gain and the power-allocation parameter have an important influence on the OP performance.
