Bandwidth and power allocation for cooperative strategies in Gaussian relay networks
Abstract-- In a relay network with a single sourcedestination pair, we examine the achievable rates with amplifyand-forward (AF) relaying strategy. Motivated by applications in sensor networks, we consider power-constrained networks with large bandwidth resources and a large number of nodes. We show that the AF strategy does not necessarily benefit from the large available bandwidth. We characterize the optimum AF bandwidth and show that transmitting in the optimum bandwidth allows the network to operate in the linear regime where the achieved rate increases linearly with the available network power. We then present the optimum power allocation among the AF relays. The solution, which can be viewed as a form of maximum ratio combining, indicates the favorable relay positions in the network. Motivated by the large bandwidth resources we further consider a network that uses orthogonal transmissions at the nodes. While the above result for the optimum bandwidth still holds, a different se...
