QoS-aware Power Allocation and Relay Placement in Green Cooperative FSO Communications

Abstract : Due to increasing quality-of-service (QoS) demand in already congested radio spectrum, there is a need for designing energy-efficient free space optical (FSO) communication networks. Considering a realistic fading model incorporating the fluctuations in angle-of-arrival, we minimize the outage probability for error free transmission of high data volumes through optimizing the power allocation (PA) and relay placement (RP) in a dual-hop decode-and-forward (DF) relay-assisted cooperative FSO communication with coherent detection and direct link unavailability. As this problem is nonconvex, first the optimal PA between source and relay is obtained using a global optimization algorithm. Also, a closed form for the solution is obtained using a tight analytical approximation with the assumption that atmospheric turbulence over both the links is nearly same. Next, we optimize the RP followed by the outage probability is jointly minimized using alternating optimization algorithm. Numerical results validate the outage analysis and provide key insights on optimal PA and RP yielding an outage enhancement of around 37% over the benchmark scheme.
