Abstract [en]

This work examines error rate performance of Multi-Hop communication systems, employing Single Input Single Output (SISO) transmissions over Nakagami-m fading channel. Mobile multi-hop relaying (MMR) system has been adopted in several Broadband Wireless Access Networks (BWAN) as a cost-effective means of extending the coverage and improving the capacity of these wireless networks. In a MMR system, communication between the source node and destination node is achieved through an intermediate node (i.e., Relay Station). It is widely accepted that multi-hop relaying communication can provide higher capacity and can reduce the interference in BWANs. Such claims though have not been quantified. Quantiļ¬cation of such claims is an essential step to justify a better opportunity for wide deployment of relay stations.In this thesis, Bit Error Rate (BER) of multi-hop communication systems has been analysed. Different kinds of fading channels have been used to estimate the error rate performance for wireless transmission. Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) has been employed as the modulation technique and Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) has been used as the channel noise. The same Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) was used to estimate the channel performance. Three channels were compared by simulating their BER, namely, Rayleigh, Rician and Nakagami. Matlab has been used for simulation.
