Abstract

This paper presents a comprehensive performance analysis of multiuser multiple antenna amplify-and-forward relaying networks employing opportunistic scheduling with feedback delay and co-channel interference over Rayleigh fading channels. Specifically, we derive exact as well as approximate closed-form expressions for the outage probability and average symbol error rate (SER) of the system. In addition, simple asymptotic expressions at the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime are obtained, which facilitate the characterization of the achievable diversity order and coding gain of the system. Moreover, two novel ergodic capacity bounds valid for general systems with arbitrary number of antennas and users are proposed. Finally, the optimum power allocation scheme in terms of minimizing the average SER is studied, and simple analytical solutions are obtained. Simulation results are provided to corroborate the derived analytical expressions, and it is demonstrated that the ergodic capacity bounds remain sufficiently tight across the entire range of SNRs and the proposed power allocation scheme offers significant improvements on the SER performance. The findings of the paper suggest that the full diversity order can only be achieved when there is ideal feedback, i.e., no feedback delay, and the diversity order always reduces to one in the presence of feedback delay. Also, the impact of key parameters such as the number of antennas and users on the system performance is intimately dependent on the level of feedback delay.
