ABSTRACT In this paper, the performance of a dual-hop Amplify-and-Forward (AF) multi-antenna relay network, with end-to-end (e2e) best antenna selection, is investigated. To investigate the performance of this system, we first derive the exact outage probability in closed-form. It is then used to obtain expressions for e2e SNR moments and the average symbol/bit error rate (SER/BER) valid for a large class of practical modulation schemes. A simple and accurate BER approximation is also derived to quantify the performance at high SNR. Our analytical results, show that the e2e antenna pair selection scheme achieves the same diversity order as for the case where all antennas are used. To further confirm the validity of our analysis, Monte Carlo simulation results are also presented.

    ABSTRACT: A two-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) relaying system with antenna selection at each node is analyzed in this paper. Fixed-gain relaying strategy which has a low complexity is considered at the relay. New exact expressions for outage probability and average symbol error rate (SER) for a variety of modulation schemes are derived. To gain insight as to how parameters influence system performance, the coding gain and diversity diversity are analytically presented. Also, asymptotic behavior for outage probability and average SER at high signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) are quantified. Finally, computer simulations are compared with the analytical expressions to verify the exactness of the derived theoretical results.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, the performance of the dual-hop Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) amplify-and-forward (AF) relay systems with transmit beamforming and maximum ratio combining scheme (MIMO-MRC) is investigated over interference-limited Rayleigh fading channels. Exact closed-form expressions have been derived for the cumulative distribution function (CDF) and probability distribution function (PDF) of the equivalent signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR), the outage probability, and average symbol error rate (SER). Finally, numerical results and Monte Carlo simulations are carried out, by which we verify the validity of our analysis and study the effects of various parameters on the system performance.

    ABSTRACT: We consider an end-to-end antenna selection (E2E-AS) scheme for a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) two-way relaying system with amplify-and-forward (AF) based relay terminal between two source terminals, each having multiple antennas. The proposed E2E-AS strategy involves selecting a single best antenna at each terminal of the system. Under a Rayleigh flat-fading environment, we present exact and asymptotic expressions of the overall system outage probability. We show that with single-antenna selection at each terminal, the underlying strategy achieves the same diversity order as the scheme using all the available antennas. We also highlight the impact of relay location and power allocation on the overall system outage performance. Finally, we provide numerical and simulation results to confirm the theoretical analysis and the performance of the proposed scheme.
