Performance enhancement of Relays used for next Generation Wireless Communication Networks



Relaying is one of the latest communication technologies developed for wireless communication networks like WiMAX, LTE Advanced and 5G URLLC networks to provide coverage extension as well as higher bitrates for cell edge users. Thus they are included in the design of next generation wireless communication systems to provide considerable increase in data throughput than their predecessors. Reduction in deployment cost and easy to utilize are other promising features of these technologies. The objective of this paper is to analyze both cooperative and non-cooperative relaying techniques in the Infinite Block length regime and outline the advantages of Relay implementation. A single Amplify and Forward (A&F) Relay is used for this purpose. Reduction in transmission power for Simple Relay is shown in comparison to the conventional direct transmission, using experimental analysis with Matlab simulation. SER (Symbol error rate) is calculated at the receiver for no relay, simple relay and Cooperative Relaying scenario to show the improvements of cooperative relaying implementation.The performance enhancement of the Relay is then carried out using Particle Swam Optimization (PSO) optimization technique where allocation of power between Base station and Relay Node is effectively distributed for optimum performance.
