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 Efcient Cooperative Wireless
Communication and Networks provides a comprehensive look at energy
efciency and system design of cooperative wireless communication.
Introducing effective cooperative wireless communication schemes, the book
supplies the understanding and methods required to improve energy efciency,
reliability, and end-to-end protocol designs for wireless communication systems.
It explains the practical benets and limitations of cooperative transmissions
along with the associated designs of upper-layer protocols, including MAC,
routing, and transport protocol.
The book considers power efciency 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 benets of given transmissions against
Because the techniques detailed in each chapter can help readers achieve energy
efciency 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 efcient wireless networks with improved service
coverage and reliability.
