This paper introduces an enriched -μ distribution which may act as fading model with its origins via the scale mixture construction. The distribution's characteristics are visited and its feasibility as a fading candidate in wireless communications systems is investigated. The analysis of the system reliability and some performance measures of wireless communications systems over this enriched -μ fading candidate are illustrated. Computable representations of the Laplace transform for this scale mixture construction are also provided. The derived expressions are explored via numerical investigations. Tractable results are computed in terms of the Meijer G-function. This unified scale mixture approach allows access to previously unconsidered underlying models that may yield improved fits to experimental data in practice.
