Abstract

This paper develops a mathematical framework to study downlink error rates and throughput for half-duplex (HD) terminals served by a full-duplex (FD) base station (BS). The developed model is used to motivate long term pairing for users that have non-line of sight (NLOS) interfering link. Consequently, we study the interferer limited problem that appears between NLOS HD users-pair that are scheduled on the same FD channel. The distribution of the interference is first characterized via its distribution function, which is derived in closed form. Then, a comprehensive performance assessment for the proposed pairing scheme is provided by assuming Extended Generalized- $cal{K}$ (EGK) fading for the downlink and studying different modulation schemes. To this end, a unified closed form expression for the average symbol error rate is derived. Furthermore, we show the effective downlink throughput gain harvested by the pairing NLOS users as a function of the average signal-to-interferenceratio when compared to an idealized HD scenario with neither interference nor noise. Finally, we show the minimum required channel gain pairing threshold to harvest downlink throughput via the FD operation when compared to the HD case for each modulation scheme.
