This paper studies the performance of cellular mobile systems employing a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)-based generalized selection combining (GSC) algorithm in the presence of background white noise and multiple cochannel interfering signals. Closed-form expressions are derived for the received signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) distribution and outage probability, considering the case when the interfering signals experience mixed Rayleigh and Nakagami-q fading conditions, and the desired signal replicas are attenuated by flat Rayleigh fading. These expressions are obtained via the new representation of the total interference-to-noise ratio (INR) distribution for the mixed mode of fading experienced by different interferers. The derived expressions for the aforementioned statistical measures are valid for an arbitrary number of interferers and system diversity order and can be employed to investigate the impact of various system and fading parameters on the performance measures. Several case studies can be deduced from the results presented in this paper, including interference-limited systems, wherein the impact of white noise can be neglected.
