The capacity of wireless communication architectures equipped with multiple transmit and receive antennas and impaired by both noise and cochannel interference is studied. We find a closed-form solution for the capacity in the limit of a large number of antennas. This asymptotic solution, which is a sole function of the relative number of transmit and receive antennas and the signal-to-noise and signal-to-interference ratios (SNR and SIR), is then particularized to a number of cases of interest. By verifying that antenna diversity one can substitute for time and/or frequency diversity at providing ergodicity, we show that these asymptotic solutions approximate the ergodic capacity very closely even when the number of antennas is very small.
