Space-Time Network Codes Utilizing Transform-Based Coding
Abstract-- Cooperative communications can be used to improve communication reliability. However, the transmissions from different relaying nodes result in a great challenge in practice. The use of TDMA for relaying transmissions causes large transmission delay. In contrast, FDMA and CDMA associate with the issue of imperfect frequency and timing synchronization due to the simultaneous transmissions from the relaying nodes. In this work, we propose a space-time network coding (STNC) scheme utilizing transform-based coding to improve communication reliability while maintaining a stable network throughput and overcoming the issue of imperfect frequency and timing synchronization. Based on TDMA, a node in the network forms a linearly-coded signal from the overheard symbols and transmits it to the destination in its dedicated time slot. The pairwise error probability (PEP) is analyzed and design criteria of the STNC are derived to ensure achieving full diversity. Simulations are conducted t...
