An analytical expression for the switching rate of a dual branch selection diversity combiner in kappa-mu and alpha-mu distributed fadings is derived. Independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) kappa-mu as well as alpha-mu fading channels are considered. The switching rates for dual i.i.d. Rayleigh, Rician and Nakagami-m fading channels are special cases of the switching rate for dual i.i.d. kappa-mu fading channels. Similarly, the general switching rates for dual alpha-mu fading channels… CONTINUE READING
