Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors consider the BRoadCast (BRC) phase of two-way Decode-and-Forward (DF) relaying systems. The channel in that phase is called the bidirectional broadcast channel. Its achievable rates are calculated when the self-interference aided channel estimation scheme is applied. They consider a block-fading channel model in the BRC phase and exploit the self-interference that is inherent in two-way relaying techniques to get an initial estimate of the channel at the receiving terminals. This initial channel estimate is utilized to decode the data in the first several time slots of each coherence interval. Data-aided approaches are then employed to improve the channel estimates in the following time slots of each coherence interval.
