This study investigates the performance of practical wireless exclusive OR (XOR) two-way relay (TWR) system, in which finite buffer, lossy wireless channels and non-negligible signalling overhead are considered. Specifically, the authors develop a new analytical model to explicitly characterise the transmissions of both the end-nodes and the relay. The impact of scheduling on the throughput, queuing delay, power consumption and buffer overflow probability of XOR-TWR is evaluated. Validated by simulations, the model can precisely quantify the performance of XOR-TWR and adequately allocate the relay's buffer adapting to the wireless link qualities and signalling overhead.
