Next generation wireless networks must accommodate the available data rate in the fast growing demands of emerging network, which needs to maximize the capacity of networks. Enabling the better relying approach is one of the way to improve the capacity with efficient utilization of resources. Motivated by the observation of several relaying approaches, the imprecise nature of wireless network has to be handled in a better way with intelligent decisions on relay selection. The proposed protocols are designed in four parts. In first part, a formula to make intelligent choice of relay at every location based on considerable QoS parameters is proposed. The second part is responsible to enhance the proposed formula to reduce the end to end delay. The third part works based on assigning priority among the parameters to conclude the merits and demerits among the different parameters. The fourth part shows an integration of gaming decision in the proposed inference for the betterment of throughput and packet delivery ratio. The empirical investigation of our proposed approaches demonstrated that our simulation results have significant throughput yield than conventional mechanisms.
