Improved Rate-Compatible Joint Network-Channel Code for the Two-Way Relay Channel

In [1] a rate-compatible joint network-channel code (JNCC) for the two-way relay channel was proposed which can be applied for the cooperative uplink and downlink in a mobile communication system with the help of a relay. We assume the system model of [1] and present an improved JNCC which is based on the decode-and-forward scheme of [2]. In [2] a coding… CONTINUE READING
