Asymptotically tight performance bounds for selection diversity over Beaulieu-Xie fading channels with arbitrary correlation Olutayo, Adebola; Cheng, Julian; Holzman, Jonathan F.

Abstract

A new (Beaulieu-Xie) fading model was recently proposed to describe line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight components in wireless channels. In this work, we consider both outage probability and error rate performance of selective combining over this new fading channel model with arbitrary channel correlation. Closed-form expressions are obtained for asymptotically tight upper and lower bounds. The analytical results are verified by Monte Carlo simulations.
