Diversity Loss Due to Interference Correlation


Interference in wireless systems is both temporally and spatially correlated. Yet very little research has analyzed the effect of such correlation. Here we focus on its impact on the diversity in Poisson networks with multi-antenna receivers. Most work on multi-antenna communication does not consider interference, and if it is included, it is assumed independent across the receive antennas. Here we show that interference correlation significantly reduces the probability of successful reception over SIMO links. The diversity loss is quantified via the diversity polynomial. For the two-antenna case, we provide the complete joint SIR distribution.
