This paper considers the sum-rate of wireless broadcast systems with multiple antennas at the base station. In a conventional MIMO-BC system with a large number of users, selecting an optimal subset of users to maximizing the overall system capacity is a key design issue. This paper presents a novel approach to investigate the sum-rate using Eigen Value Decomposition (EVD). Particularly, we derive the lower bound on sum-rate of a conventional MIMO-BC using a completely different approach compared to the existing approaches. The paper formulates the rate maximization problem for any number of users and any number of transmitting antennas using EVD approach of the channel matrix. This also shows the impact of channel angle information on the sum-rate of conventional MIMO-BC. Numerical results confirm the benefits of our technique in various MIMO communication scenarios.
