Digital & Wireless Communications
Compared with conventional communications, cooperative communication allows
multiple users in a wireless network to coordinate their packet transmissions
and share each other’s resources, thus achieving high-performance gain and
better service coverage and reliability. Energy Efcient Cooperative Wireless
Communication and Networks provides a comprehensive look at energy
efciency and system design of cooperative wireless communication.
Introducing effective cooperative wireless communication schemes, the book
supplies the understanding and methods required to improve energy efciency,
reliability, and end-to-end protocol designs for wireless communication systems.
It explains the practical benets and limitations of cooperative transmissions
along with the associated designs of upper-layer protocols, including MAC,
routing, and transport protocol.
The book considers power efciency as a main objective in cooperative
communication to ensure quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. It explains
how to bring the performance gain at the physical layer up to the network layer
and how to allocate network resources dynamically through MAC/scheduling
and routing to trade off the performance benets of given transmissions against
network costs.
Because the techniques detailed in each chapter can help readers achieve energy
efciency and reliability in wireless networks, they have the potential to impact
a range of industry areas, including wireless communication, wireless sensor
networks, and ad hoc networks.
The book includes numerous examples, best practices, and models that capture
key issues in real-world applications. Along with algorithms and tips for
effective design, the book supplies the understanding you will need to achieve
high-performing and energy efcient wireless networks with improved service
coverage and reliability.
