Decode-and-Forward Cooperative Relay with Multi-User Detection in Uplink CDMA Networks
Abstract— The use of multi-user detection (MUD) in a cooperative CDMA network is investigated for the uplink in synchronous CDMA systems. Suppose that, at any instant in time, part of the users serve as sources while the others serve as relays. The proposed MUD scheme decorrelates the sources’ messages at the destination with the help of precoding at the relays. Three cooperation methods are considered: (1) transmit beamforming, (2) selective relaying and (3) distributed spacetime coding. The optimal weighting factors of each method are determined by taking the quality of the source-to-relay and/or the relay-to-destination links into account. We show that significant improvements in terms of the spatial diversity and multiple-access interference (MAI) mitigation can be attained when precoding is employed at the relays to aid the decorrelation at the destination. The advantages are even more pronounced when selective relaying is combined with the other two schemes.
