A multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay network is composed of source, relay, and destination nodes, each of which is equipped with multiple antennas. Network information theory has shown that the use of multiple relay nodes in source and destination (S-D) communication makes the capacity of the S-D system logarithmically increase with the number of relay nodes. In [13], we proposed a MIMO relay scheme for a relay network with single source and destination pair; each of the multiple relay nodes performs QR decomposition of backward and forward channels in conjunction with phase control (QR-P-QR). In this paper, we extend this scheme to the MIMO relay network with multiple source and destination pairs. For this aim, we use the group nulling approach to decompose the multiple S-D MIMO relay channel to parallel independent S-D MIMO relay channels, and apply the QR-P-QR scheme in each of the decomposed MIMO relay links. Numerical examples show that the proposed relay scheme offers higher capacity than the existing zero-forcing (ZF) relaying scheme
