—We analyze the bit-error rate (BER) performance of the distributed Alamouti's code for cooperative diversity networks consisting of a source, two relays and a destination node over Rayleigh fading channels. It is assumed that the relays adopt the amplify-and-forward protocol. Firstly, assuming the existence of the direct path component from the source to(More)
—For the decode-and-forward protocol in relay networks , opportunistic relaying (OR) and selection cooperation (SC) are two major relay selection schemes, which have been studied only for single antenna terminals. We study OR and SC in a multi-antenna relay network where each terminal has multiple antennas. To fully exploit multiple antennas without(More)
This paper focuses on average bit error rate (BER) and diversity order analysis of distributed Alamouti's code in dissimilar cooperative networks with channel state information (CSI)-assisted relays. We first assume that the relays adopt the amplifying coefficient proposed in [1]. A lower and an upper bounds of the average BER of the distributed Alamouti's(More)
are composed of source and destination nodes with multiple antennas. But, when nodes cannot support multiple antennas due to size or other constraints, especially for mobiles, the MIMO cannot be used to provide diversity. Cooperative communication enables single antenna to realize a virtual multiple antenna transmitter by sharing their antennas. Therefore,(More)
