On the Performance of Distributed Space-Time Block Codes in Cooperative Relay Networks

  title={On the Performance of Distributed Space-Time Block Codes in Cooperative Relay Networks},
  author={Timo Unger and Anja Klein},
  journal={IEEE Communications Letters},
In this paper, space-time block codes (STBCs) are applied in a distributed fashion in a scenario with multiple cooperating relay stations (RSs) having multiple antennas. By applying the Chernoff bound to the theoretical bit error rate (BER) in Rayleigh fading channels, it turns out that the BER performance has a higher sensitivity to spatial correlation in multiple input multiple output channels than to different receive powers at the receiver from different cooperating RSs. If the number of… CONTINUE READING
