In this paper, a numerical approach to the performance analysis of a signal-to-interference-based selection combining receiver, operating over a Rician multipath-fading environment, in the presence of multiple Nakagami-m co-channel interferers is provided. Closed form expressions are obtained for the first-order and second-order statistical measures, that is, the probability density function, cumulative distribution function, and average level-crossing rate of the received signal. Further, the aforementioned results are used for an efficient evaluation of other performance measures, such are outage probability and average fade duration. A graphical representation of the obtained numerical results is also provided in order to present and discuss the influence of transmission parameters on the studied performance measures.
