Abstract

This paper presents general expressions for the calculation of the level crossing rate of various combinations of multiple independent random processes. These new formulas are then applied to obtain the outage rate and average outage duration of several communication systems and networks of current interest. Applications include for example multi-hop communication systems with and without selection combining as well as communication networks with routing diversity.
