Abstract
In recent schemes proposed to the physical layer of wireless systems, the receiver node has the capability of simultaneously receiving multiple transmissions, which is commonly referred to as a Multi-Packet Reception (MPR) scheme. Assuming that the transmitters are randomly located in the far-field region and a generic signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) threshold-based criterion is used as the packet capture model, we derive the probability of successful reception of a packet considering path loss, shadowing and fading effects. Our approach relies on the characterization of the aggregate interference caused by the transmitters, which is used in the capture model in a simplified way. The probability of successful reception of a packet is then used to approximate the average number of packets simultaneously received. The proposed analysis is evaluated for different scenarios and compared with several results obtained through simulation. The simplicity of the model, as well as its accuracy, makes it a useful tool to assist the design of future medium access control mechanisms for MPR wireless systems.
