This paper studies a low-latency decode-and-forward cooperative wireless network subject to composite fading. Assuming temporally correlated channel between cooperating nodes and maximal ratio combining at the destination, outage probability(OP)performance is investigated and novel OP expressions are derived when nodes apply a threshold-based protocol for internode communication. The effects of network dimension, multipath fading and shadowing severity parameters, correlation coefficients and average uplink and internode signal-to-noise ratios on OP are discussed.
