To enable multiple mobile users to transmit their signals simultaneously over the same sub-channels, the virtual multiple-input multiple-output (V-MIMO) techniques can exploit the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) spectrum efficiency gain. Traditional V-MIMO transmission schemes mainly focus on maximizing the throughput of grouped mobile users without taking into account the quality-of-service (QoS) provisionings. In this paper, we propose the optimal power allocation schemes with statistical QoS provisionings to maximize the effective capacity of non-collaborative/collaborative V-MIMO wireless networks, respectively. For non-collaborative V-MIMO wireless networks, the mobile users in one V-MIMO group transmit signals independently over the same sub-channels. In the view point of existing mobile users, they solely occupy the sub-channels. Thus, the existing mobile users employ the QoS-driven single-user power allocation scheme to maximize their effective capacity. By converting the non-collaborative V-MIMO transmission optimization problem into a strictly convex optimization problem, we derive the QoS-driven power allocation scheme for the newly added mobile users to maximize their effective capacity. For collaborative V-MIMO wireless networks where the mobile users in one group can collaboratively transmit their signals, we derive the QoS-driven collaborative power allocation schemes for both the existing and the newly added mobile users. Also conducted is a set of simulation evaluations, showing that our proposed power allocation schemes for V-MIMO wireless networks outperform the other existing schemes.
