This letter presents an analytical study of outage probability of a 3G/Ad Hoc cooperative network. The considered cooperative network can improve the signal quality so as to decrease the outage probability. Meanwhile, it imposes additional interference on other ongoing users. But on the whole, our analytical study and simulation results show that the cooperative network can still effectively overcome outage event and decrease the average outage probability.
