This paper proposes Symbol-based Soft Forwarding (SSF) protocol for coded transmissions which is based on a simple proposed soft symbol estimation at relay nodes. We present a simple strategy of forwarding soft information based on a simple linear summation of likelihood functions of each symbol. Specifically, with SSF, we demonstrate that exclusion of decoding at the relays costs no significant performance loss. To validate our claims, we examine bit error rate (BER) performance for thedoi:10.4236/ijcns.2011.49068 fatcat:hww52ac7gjcs7lqvdbxstn3ui4
