In this paper, we propose a threshold-based one-bit soft forwarding (TOB-SF) protocol for a multi-source relaying uplink system with network coding. In the TOB-SF protocol, the relay calculates the log-likelihood ratio (LLR) value of each network coded symbol, compares this LLR value with a pre-optimized threshold, and determines whether to transmit or keep silent. We first derive the bit error rate (BER) expression at the destination, based on which, we optimize the threshold to minimize the BER. Then we theoretically prove that the system can achieve the full diversity gain by using this threshold. Further, we optimize the power allocation at the relay to achieve a higher coding gain. Simulation results show that the proposed TOB-SF protocol outperforms other conventional relaying protocols in terms of error performance.
