Abstract

In this paper, we consider a multi-user scenario where an arbitrary number of sources transmit their messages to the intended destinations by means of relays in a decodeand-forward two-hop mechanism. To minimize the interference generated in the scenario, two opportunistic relay selection mechanisms are proposed and investigated. The performance of the two selection mechanisms is analytically evaluated, in terms of outage probability and average achievable rate, under the assumption that relay nodes are distributed according to a Poisson point process. Asymptotical analysis is also presented for infinite node density. Numerical results show that the selection of the relays has a significant impact on the amount of interference generated and a suitable choice can improve the overall performance.
