The relationship between the latency and reliability of multi-antena diversity system is investigated in this paper. The system performance of diversity system is analysed with the outage probability chosen as the reliability metric. Two combining techniques are considered in the diversity system. It is proved that the latency-reliability trade-off degree (LRTD), i.e., the slope of the latency-outage curves with logarithmic scales, equals the number of the diversity order. In addition, the diversity system with considering system overhead is investigated. Golden section search algorithm and a simplified iterative method can be used to obtain the optimum diversity order of multiple-input and single-output (MISO) system adopted with maximal ratio combining and section combining techniques, respectively.
