In this paper we investigate the performance of proactive opportunistic relaying with amplify-and-forward (AF) protocol over independent and non-identically distributed Generalized Gamma fading channels. The Generalized Gamma distribution is very versatile and accurately approximates many of the commonly used channel scenarios for multipath, shadow and composite fading. We show that opportunistic relaying not only reduces the amount of required resources but also maintains the full diversity… CONTINUE READING
