Simple schemes are proposed for implementing deterministic teleportation, superdense coding, and quantum information splitting with W-type entangled states. The physical realization of these schemes should be much simpler than previous ones due to the assistance of an auxiliary particle. We illustrate the ideas in cavity quantum electrodynamics. The important features of our schemes can also be demonstrated in other systems.
