Abstract

In this paper, we provide a comprehensive analytical framework on the performance of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) mutlihop amplify-and-forward relay network employing transmit antenna selection (TAS) with receive maximal ratio combining (MRC) in the presence of randomly located interferers. The channel fading models per hop are assumed to be independent and follow exponential random distribution, and the interference is distributed according to the spatial Poisson point process PPP, which is further known as symmetric alpha stable distribution. The impact of spatial dependence across multiple antennas is facilitated by considering three different network interference models: 1) the isotropic model, where all receive antennas see interference belonging to the same Poisson point process (PPP); 2) the independent model, where each receive antenna sees interference belonging to a different independent PPP; and 3) the mixture model, where each receive antenna sees the superposition of the two previous models. The end-to-end transmission is performed using two TAS modes, which includes signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)-based selection, and signal-to-interference noise ratio (SINR)-based selection. The analysis provides new analytical results for the outage probability and symbol error rates (SER). In addition, the impact of feedback delay on the performance of the proposed system for SNR-based selection is investigated. We further study the optimum resource allocation strategies including power allocation, position allocation, and joint allocation for power and position. The obtained results are clarified through selected numerical and simulated examples.
