This paper studies the sum-rate performance of regularized zero-forcing (RZF) precoding in a multi-user multiple-input single-output (MISO) system, where the channel between the base station (BS) and each user is modeled by the double scattering channel model. This non-Gaussian channel accounts for both the spatial correlation in the antenna arrays and the structure of scattering in the propagation environment. The user population is divided into G groups, where the users in the same group experience similar propagation conditions and are characterized by common correlation matrices. Under this setting, we derive deterministic approximations of the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) and the sum-rate with RZF precoding, which are almost surely tight in the large system limit. Simulation results confirm the close match provided by the asymptotic analysis for moderate system dimensions.
