Combining multi-input multi-output (MIMO) antenna techniques with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation (MIMO-OFDM) becomes an attractive air-interface solution for the next generation high speed wireless systems. Nevertheless, because the total available transmit power is split uniformly across transmit antennas in MIMO-OFDM systems, increasing the number of transmit antennas leads to a smaller signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) per degree of freedom. Thus the coverage performance of this kind of MIMO-OFDM system becomes an essential issue. In this paper by means of order statistics and Glivenko-Cantelli theorem, we develop an analytical expressions for the link outage probability and cell coverage reliability of OFDM-based spatial multiplexing systems in a frequency selective fading channel, respectively.
