We investigate the end-to-end outage probability over a multi-source multi-relay network assuming that all the wireless links are suffering from independent block fading variations. The overall transmission is divided into two tandem hops. The first hop represents the transmission between sources and relays, while the relays transmit to the destinations in the second hop. We consider specifically a two-source two-relay single-destination network. Based on the decoding process at the relays, the data recovery at the relays can be classified into three cases based on achievable bounded rate regions. The first case where both relays cannot recover both users’ data can be characterized as chief executive officer problem at the second hop. For the second case, the relays recover the data of both users, and the outage probability of the second hop can be computed by exploiting maximum ratio transmission. Finally, for the third case, only one of the users’ data is recovered by one of the relays, and the outage probability of the second hop can be calculated by using the theorem of source coding with helper. Numerical results closely follow the theoretical analysis and confirm the improved performance of the multiple-antenna relaying over the single-antenna relaying.
