In a cellular-like system, the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) mode used by a base station (BS) can be adaptively varied among several candidate MIMO modes, including space-time block coding (STBC), open-loop spatial multiplexing (OLSM), closed-loop spatial multiplexing (CLSM), MIMO beamforming (MBF), and maximal ratio transmission (MRT). In practice, during any one given period of time, when the desired BS performs downlink transmission with a specific MIMO mode, each co-channel interfering BS will use a MIMO mode the same as or different from that used in the desired link and any two co-channel interfering BSs may use different MIMO modes, so that the interference scenario becomes quite complicated. In this paper, considering realistic propagation conditions including both path-loss and Rayleigh fading and considering the existence of unequal-power interferers, the statistical distributions of the post-processing signal-to-interference ratios (SIRs) for either MBF or STBC downlink transmissions are analyzed when co-channel interfering BSs employ arbitrary MIMO modes. In particular, closed-form expressions for the probability density function (PDF) of the interference terms in the post-processing SIRs are derived. Further, the statistical distributions of the post-processing SIRs are analyzed. Simulation results verify the validity of the theoretical analyses.
