A performance analysis of user scheduling schemes for multiuser MIMO systems exploiting the multiuser and antenna diversities over Nakagami-m fading channels is presented. We consider different scheduling schemes including absolute SNR-based scheduling, and normalized SNR-based scheduling schemes for both heterogeneous and homogeneous wireless networks. We derive closed-form expressions for the average spectral efficiency, average bit error rate (BER), and outage probability of the system under study for each scheduling scheme. Using the results obtained from the closed-form analytical expressions, we compare the presented schemes and show their significant advantages. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
