Abstract

Analytical expressions to approximate the expected per-user signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio (SINR) and ergodic sum-rate of a multiuser multiple-input-multiple-output system are presented. Our analysis assumes uncorrelated Ricean fading channels with regularized zero-forcing precoding on the downlink. The derived expressions are averaged with respect to the previously unknown arbitrary eigenvalue densities of the complex non-central Wishart distributed channel correlation matrix. To aid the derivation of the expected SINR, we derive analytical expressions for the joint density of two arbitrary eigenvalues of the complex non-central Wishart matrix. Unlike previous studies, our model caters to the presence of a unique Rice factor for each user terminal, making it suitable for analysis of modern systems, such as small cells and millimeter-wave. Our findings suggest that while the presence of strong line-of-sight has an adverse effect on the expected SINR and ergodic sum-rates, increasing the variability of Rice factors enhances the peak rate performance of the system. Our analysis can be applied to arbitrary system dimensions and is seen to remain tight across the signal-to-noise-ratio range considered.
