This paper proposes a new space-division multiple-access (SDMA) approach for multiuser multiple-input multiple-output downlink systems using statistical precoding. The proposed scheme makes use of rotated discrete Fourier transform (DFT) matrices to realize spatial divisions, each of which defines a cluster within which users have their transmit-side eigenmodes aligning closely with a common rotated DFT matrix. Users inside a cluster are divided into groups, and users exhibiting orthogonal eigen-directions are put in the same group realizing SDMA. It is shown that the proposed scheme can greatly enhance the average system throughput if compared with time-division multiple-access, especially when transmit-side correlation is high. Meanwhile, the proposed scheme outperformances traditional linear precoding schemes such as zero forcing when the feedback bits for the channel state information are limited.
