SIR Statistics and Average Rates in Cooperative Spectrum Sharing Networks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Research units


In this paper, we analyze cooperative wireless networks (primary networks) operating under randomly located interfering nodes (secondary networks). Applying Poisson point processes to modeling of network and interfering node locations, we derive statistics of signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) under different operational scenarios and show that the SIR statistical models can be viewed as special cases of the H-function distribution. On this basis, we obtain formulas for the average information rates. The presented results are general, and they are applicable to arbitrary fading conditions.
