In this paper we study two-way relaying with amplify-and-forward (AF) relays. In two-way relaying, two terminals exchange data with the help of an intermediate relay station. In order to enable mass deployment of these relays, we focus on very simple AF relays that do not have any channel state information. Hence, to separate the data streams in two-way relaying, both user terminals need reliable knowledge of all relevant channel parameters. We therefore propose the novel tensor-based channel estimation algorithm TENCE that provides both terminals with full knowledge of all channel parameters involved in the transmission. The solution is algebraic, i.e., it does not require any iterative procedures. Moreover, TENCE is applicable to arbitrary antenna configurations. We also derive criteria for the design of the pilot symbols and the corresponding relay amplification matrices. Computer simulations demonstrate the achievable channel estimation accuracy.
