Transmitter side information enables techniques such as beamforming, power control, and rate control in fading channels. It is commonly accepted in the literature that the addition of transmitter information (CSIT) to receiver information (CSIR) provides better performance than receiver information alone. In this work, we examine the performance of a symmetric, single-input, multiple-output (SIMO) channel in which CSIT is acquired through the use of training symbols, and we have a genie-aided receiver. We give a closed form expression for outage probability at high SNR while accounting for the resources consumed by training. We also analyze the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff and find that, though the diversity falls far below that of systems with perfect CSIT, it is still sufficiently superior to that achieved by CSIR-only systems to justify the cost of training. We show that, at zero multiplexing, transmitter training doubles the diversity order of a CSIR-only system and offers nonzero diversity at all achievable multiplexing gains.
