Article
Recently, generalized fading distributions have gained substantial research interest due to their applicability and adaptability in practical scenarios. In this paper, we derive the exact closed-form expressions for the probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the maximal-ratio combining (MRC) of the free spa...

This paper investigates the ergodic capacity performance of hybrid free space optics (FSO)/ radio frequency (RF) system by employing an adaptive-combining-based switching scheme. In the adaptive combining scheme, the FSO and RF links are combined using the maximal-ratio combining (MRC) at the output, when the instantaneous signal-to-noise ratio (SN...
Article
Free-space optics (FSO) communication is often unreliable, especially for long distances, as it suffers from attenuation due to foggy weather, atmospheric turbulence, and pointing errors. To avoid communication link failure, radio frequency (RF) communication, which is unaffected from these effects, is utilized when FSO communication is in outage....
Article
Full-text available
In recent years, a growing interest has been witnessed in the usage of free space optics (FSO) link for satellite communication (SATCOM) scenarios, as it offers much higher data rates up to gigabits per second (Gbps) compared to existing radio frequency (RF) link. However, FSO links are sensitive to beam scintillation and pointing errors. In this p...

Optical wireless communication (OWC) has garnered significant importance to provide gigabit capacity links owing to its unique features. Free-space optics (FSO) communication, which is the term used for OWC in an outdoor scenario, is a good candidate to establish ground-to-satellite/satellite-to-ground links. Despite of many advantages, FSO communi...

Hybrid free space optics/radio frequency (FSO/RF) communication has been considered as a promising solution for reliable wireless backhaul connectivity for 5G and beyond wireless communication systems. In this paper, comprehensive performance analysis of the hybrid FSO/RF system has been carried out considering single-threshold-based switching stra...

This study investigates the performance of a decode‐and‐forward‐relay‐based hybrid free space optical (FSO)/radio frequency (RF) system with selection combining. The proposed hybrid system considers an FSO sub‐system as a default transmission option and RF sub‐system is utilised when FSO is in outage. For the proposed system, the outage threshold s...

This study deals with the performance analysis of adaptive combining‐based hybrid free‐space optics (FSO)/radio‐frequency (RF) system in a terrestrial communication scenario with and without pointing errors. Here, outage probability and average symbol error rate (SER) are used as the performance metrics. Adaptive combining is a switching scheme in...

Product codes are multidimensional codes constructed using multiple component codes. In this paper, novel algorithms are proposed for the blind estimation of twodimensional product code parameters over noisy channel conditions considering Reed-Solomon (RS) and Bose-Chaudhuri-Hocquenghem (BCH) as component codes. The performance of the algorithms in...

Blind estimation of forward error correction code parameters at the receiver plays a significant role in non-cooperative communication, adaptive modulation and coding systems, and reconfigurable receiver systems. Turbo convolutional codes, a parallel concatenation of multiple convolutional codes, are used in digital communication and storage system...
Article
Full-text available
The performance of a free space optics (FSO) transmission suffers from the atmospheric turbulence and the attenuation in foggy environment. By employing relay nodes, the error rate and the coverage area of the FSO communication system can be significantly improved. However, the pointing errors, generated because of the building sway, have the poten...

Full-text available
In this paper, we propose a switching scheme for a hybrid free-space optical (FSO)/radio frequency (RF) system with a selective decode-and-forward (DF) relay network. Specifically, the system transmits over FSO channels when the instantaneous signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at the FSO receiver is greater than the threshold SNR. If the SNR drops below t...

Article
Full-text available
Forward error correction (FEC) codes followed by an interleaver play a significant role in improving the error performance of the digital systems by counteracting random and burst errors. In most of the applications, interleaver and FEC code parameters are known at the receiver to successfully de-interleave and decode the information bits. However,...
Article
Full-text available
In data communication and digital storage applications, interleaver, which rearranges the encoded data stream, follows the channel encoder to prevent burst errors. In general, forward error correction (FEC) codes provide protection against randomly distributed errors, whereas interleaver provides protection against error bursts. To de-interleave th...

Cooperative diversity systems with optimal and suboptimal antenna and relay selection have acquired significant attention for more than half a decade. However, optimal antenna and relay selection strategies require global channel state information (CSI), which is a cumbersome process. In this paper, we propose a diversity optimal and three suboptim...

Selection combining (SC) with full channel state information (CSI) achieves full diversity order in a decode-and-forward (DF) relaying system. However, the estimation of CSI of all the links is a cumbersome process. As an alternative, switched-diversity techniques have been proposed in the literature, in which CSI of all the links are not simultane...

In this paper, we analyse the performance of a single-relay cooperative diversity system, which is an effective technique to combat the effects of small scale fading, in a more realistic scenario by assuming a correlation among source-to-relay (SR), relay-to-destination (RD), and source-to-destination (SD) links. A generalised closed form end-to-en...
