Adaptive Turbo Trellis Coded Modulation Aided Distributed Space-Time Trellis Coding for Cooperative Communications
— In this contribution, we propose an adaptive Turbo Trellis Coded Modulation (TTCM) aided Distributed Space-Time Trellis Coding (STTC) scheme for cooperative communication over quasi-static Rayleigh fading channels. An adaptive TTCM (ATTCM) scheme is employed by the source node during the first transmission period for reliably conveying the source bits to N number of relay nodes by appropriately adjusting the coderate and modulation mode according to the near-instantaneous channel condition. The TTCM switching thresholds are chosen to ensure that the Bit Error Ratio (BER) at each relay node becomes lower than 10−6 in order to minimise the potential error propagation imposed by the relay nodes. During the second transmission period, an N-antenna assisted Distributed STTC (DSTTC) scheme is created with the aid of the aforementioned N single-antenna relay nodes. More specifically, the N relay nodes are utilised to form STTC codewords based on the re-encoded TTCM symbols of the rela...
