Computation of Outage Probability for Rician/Rayleigh Fading Environment with New Approach

Anjana Shukla, Dr. Vineeta Saxena Nigam


A new general outage probability expression for Rician/Rayleigh signal received among L Rician/Rayleigh interferes is derived.. New Rician/Rayleigh outage probabilities curves against the normalized reuse distance without lognormal shadowing effect are presented and discussed. The effect of SIR, Protection ratio , Rice factor K of signals, number of cochannel interferers L on the outage probability and reuse distance D have been investigated. By this new approach it is found in results that as reuse distance increases, outage probability decreases and for increase in protection ratio, outage probability increases.
