In this letter, we propose a limiting criterion to improve the bounds on outage probability for n-correlated Rayleigh fading channel. We use a threshold-based limiting distribution to yield explicit bounds on probability. This work takes into consideration the effect of correlated noise signal to the receiver, which is a generalization based on the power and noise correlation vectors. The approach proposed in this paper is different from many other existing bounds and it provides strong information to improve the results for the bounds on the outage probability.
