Executive Summary

Imperfect channel state information degrades the performance of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) communications; its effects on Single-User (SU) and MultiUser (MU) MIMO transmissions are quite different. In particular, MU-MIMO suffers from residual interuser interference due to imperfect channel state information while SU-MIMO only suffers from a power loss. This paper compares the throughput loss of both SU and MU-MIMO in the broadcast channel due to delay and channel quantization. Accurate closed-form approximations are derived for achievable rates for both SU and MU-MIMO.
