In this work, we analyze the diversity-multiplexing performance of a MIMO multiple access wireless system with non-cooperating transmitters. Each of the transmitters and receiver use noisy and mismatched versions of the channel estimate to implement decentralized power control. While accounting for the resources consumed in training, we show that with relatively simple power control, regardless of the number of transmitters, we can achieve double the maximum diversity order of a system with no instantaneous channel state information at the transmitters. Intuitively, the gain can be attributed to using temporal degrees of freedom enabled by power control without coding over multiple coherence intervals. © 2008 IEEE.
