However, mobility of Mobile Station (MS) in MMR network might

Selecting an appropriate Relay Station (RS) that can support data transmission for high mobility MS to enhance QoS is one of the challenges in MMR network. The main goal of the work is to develop and enhance relay selection mechanisms that can assure continuous connectivity while ensuring QoS in MMR network using NCTUns simulation tools. The approach is to develop and enhance relay selection that allows cooperative data transmission in transparent relay that guarantees continuous connectivity. The proposed relay selection defined as Co-ReSL depends on weightage of SNR, and weightage of Link Expiration Time (LET), β. The QoS performances of the proposed relay selections are in terms of throughput and average end-to-end (ETE) delay. The findings for Co-ReSL shows that at heavy traffic load, throughput increases up to 5.7% and average ETE delay reduces by 7.5% compared to Movement Aware Greedy Forwarding (MAGF) due to cooperative data transmission in selective links. The proposed relay selection mechanisms can be applied in any high mobility multi-tier cellular network.
