This paper studies the performance of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems employing multichannel beamforming in the presence of unequal power cochannel interference and noise. Our results apply to a wide class of multichannel systems which transmit on the eigenmodes of the MIMO channel, allowing for transmission on any arbitrary number of eigensubchannels, with possibly different modulation formats, and with possibly unequal powers. New exact expressions are derived for the symbol error rate (SER) of each eigensubchannel, the global SER, and the outage probability. We also present simplified closed-form expressions for the high SNR regime, and show that cochannel interference has no effect on the diversity order, but leads to a loss in array gain. Our results are based on new closed-form exact and asymptotic expressions which we derive for the marginal ordered eigenvalue distributions of a certain class of finite-dimensional complex random matrices.
