In the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) broadcast channel with imperfect channel state information (CSI), neither the capacity nor the optimal transmission technique have been fully discovered. In this paper, we derive achievable ergodic rates for a multi-antenna fading broadcast channel when CSI at the transmitter (CSIT) is delayed and quantized. It is shown that not all possible users should be supported with spatial division multiplexing due to the residual inter-user interference caused by imperfect CSIT. Based on the derived achievable rates, we propose a multi-mode transmission strategy to maximize the throughput, which adaptively adjusts the number of active users based on the channel statistics information.
