Cooperative communication is a promising method to mitigate fading, achieve high spectrum efficiency and improve transmission capacity for wireless networks by means of spatial diversity. Recently increasing research is focused on cooperative medium access control (MAC) design to make full use of diversity gain. A relay-contention-free cooperative MAC (RCF… CONTINUE READING
