In this paper we consider a multi-user spatial multiplexing (SM) cellular network, where Nt streams are transmitted to Nt users in the cell. Specifically, we obtain the coverage and rate expressions for a system employing zero-forcing (ZF) receiver. Compared to single stream transmission (SST), it is interesting to see that SM degrades the rate for a notable percentage of users. For the case of two and four receiver antennas, the increase in mean rate of SM is modest compared to single stream… CONTINUE READING
