We consider a cooperative network where the communication between a single source-destination pair is assisted by the transmission of relays. In the considered cooperative model, once a node requires cooperation, it broadcasts a claim for cooperation message. Under high mobility conditions or in some special scenarios this is the natural procedure to discover the potential relays. However, when there is a large number of nodes that can potentially serve as a relay, a multiple relay access control (MRAC) problem turns up and the relay transmissions must be organized in an effective manner. We introduce this problematic and propose three different strategies to manage this severe competitive channel. In these strategies either the source, the destination or both trigger the cooperative process. The methodology employed makes the results and conclusions valid for a wide range of cooperative scenarios, and hence, useful for a wide range of applications.
