Abstract

In this paper, we obtain novel analytical formulations for the outage probability (OP) in scenarios with α-μ or κ-μ faded signals of interest (SoI), and κ-μ or α-μ faded co-channel interference (CCI). Both single and multiple interfering scenarios have been considered, and exact formulations are provided when the SoI experiences α-μ fading and the CCI experiences κ-μ fading. When the SoI is subject to κ-μ fading and the CCI is subject to α-μ fading, exact and highly accurate approximate OP expressions have been derived for the single and multiple interfering cases, respectively. We also analyze the asymptotic behavior of the OP when the average signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) of the SoI is significantly larger or smaller than that of the interferers. Monte-Carlo simulations are performed to verify the derived results. It is worth highlighting that these general expressions are important as they unify the CCI for a number of previously disjoint fading scenarios.
