Abstract :
This paper is attentive in measuring Quality of Service (QoS) in D2D and RP communications over LTE-A network using Voice over IP (VoIP) application. In order to simulate various conditions and different location distribution in the network, different scenarios are simulated in OMNET++. The examined performance results illustrate that D2D communication performs very well in short distances and also, by increasing the distance between two mobiles, communication needs to change its path from the direct link which is also known as Side Link (SL) to the Relay Path (RP). In addition, our results demonstrate how employing Mode Switching (MS) in a suitable state can improve the QoS of communication in LTE-A and utilize the advantages of both D2D and RP communications.
