A Delay-Aware Hybrid Relay Selection Policy
Paper in proceedings, 2016
In this paper, we propose a novel relay selection policy based on the Hybrid Relay Selection (HRS) relay selection protocol that takes into account the state of the buffers and aims at reducing the average packet delays in the network. The proposed protocol, called the Delay-Aware HRS (DA - HRS) protocol is analyzed by means of Markov Chains and expressions for the outage probability, throughput and delay are derived. The distributed implementation of the protocol is also discussed. The performance of our proposed protocol is demonstrated via extensive simulations and comparisons with the classical HRS.
