Here, the helper selection phase is further divided into the priority differentiation phase (PDP) and the contention resolution phase (CRP) of the same priority helpers, which can promptly select the unique optimal helper to improve the cooperation efficiency.
The RTS/CTS based mechanism appears as an enhancement to the basic access mechanism; it reduces contention resolution overhead in terms of channel waste time due to packet collisions.
