Cooperative transmission protocols attract a great deal of attention in recent years as an efficient way to increase the capacity of multi-hop wireless networks in fading environments. In this paper, we propose and analyze a cooperative transmission method, called Cooperative-Aided Skipping multi-Hop protocol (CASH), for multi-hop wireless networks with Rayleigh fading environments. For performance evaluation, we compare and verify the results of the theoretical analysis with the results of simulations.
