Co-operation and network coding are two such powerful techniques that heightened the proficiency of wireless Networks. This paper mainly focuses on Physical-layer Network Coding (PNC) and Analog Network Coding (ANC), as they are the most studied variants of network coding in literature and represent radically different strategies between themselves, thus shedding light into which problems may hinder the scalability of network coding to more better wireless network topologies. Also, performance of cooperative networks can be enhanced with optimum relay selection. In this paper, we present the simulation results for both Analog Network Coding and Physical-layer Network Coding. We have evaluated the bit error rate (BER) over Rician fading channelsfor ANC and PNC with relay optimization by taking path loss in our system model. BPSK modulation is used for simulation results.
