Impact of Arbitrary Co-Channel MIMO Modes on Alamouti Coding Under Path-Loss and Rayleigh Fading
Co-channel interference has a tremendous impact on cellular-like systems, especially when MIMO techniques are incorporated. Taking into account the effects of both path-loss and Rayleigh fading, the authors evaluate the impact of a mix of co-channel MIMO interferers on the performance of Alamouti Coding. In particular, they derive closed-form expressions for the probability density functions of the resulting signal-to-interference ratios. Simulation results verify the validity of the analyses. MIMO, utilizing multiple antennas at both the transmitter and receiver, has emerged as a cornerstone of modern wireless communications.
