Abstract: In this paper the BER performance of the convolutional coded Amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative relay network is evaluated over κ-µ and η-µ fading channel. Source node of the considered system transmit ½ rate convolutional coded data which are modulated using Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) and Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK) modulation techniques to the sink node. System incorporates multiple relays along with the direct link for relaying the modulated data from source node to sink node. The paper represents the simulation results to visualize the effect of number of relay between the source and sink node, modulation techniques and channel model parameters on the system performance.
