Under the assumption that the branch gains of the desired user signal and the interfering signals experience Rayleigh fading and have the same correlation matrix, the outage probability of maximal ratio combining (MRC) in the presence of unequal-power cochannel interference (CCI) is derived for the two cases that the correlation matrix is equicorrelated and that the correlation matrix has different eigenvalues. The analysis allows an arbitrary number of cochannel interfering users and an arbitrary number of receiver antennas.
