Multicast based dual amplify and forward relay scheme for 2 hop networks

Adnan, Muhammad and She, Haoqiu and Wang, Yafeng and Yang, Dacheng and Xiang, Wei (2009) Multicast based dual amplify and forward relay scheme for 2 hop networks. In: LATINCOM 2009: 1st IEEE Latin-American Conference on Communications, 10-11 Sep 2009, Medellin, Colombia.


The use of multicasting over multi-hop networks seems an attractive new way to provide support to real-time applications like video streaming. In this paper, we proposed a 2-hop Dual Amplify-and-Forward (DAF) relay scheme. In this scheme, only the intermediate nodes (relay nodes) can cooperate with each other and there is no cooperation between transmitting and receiving nodes. This scheme has achieved a 4 dB gain over the earlier proposed 2-hop multicast based virtual MIMO relay scheme. In this paper we compare the two multicast relay schemes and analyze their performance with the help of MATLAB simulation.
