In this paper, the authors study the performance of two downlink multi-cellular systems: a Multiple Inputs Single Output (MISO) system using the Alamouti code and a Multiple Inputs Multiple Outputs (MIMO) system using the Alamouti code at the transmitter side and a Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC) as a receiver, in terms of outage probability. The channel model includes path-loss, shadowing and fast fading and the system is considered interference limited. Distinguished: constant shadowing and log-normally distributed shadowing, in the first case closed form expressions of the outage probability are proposed. For a log-normally distributed shadowing, they derive easily computable expressions of the outage probability.
