In this paper, the rate region of large multi-antenna multiple access channels and broadcast channels are investigated. The propagation channels between transmitters and receivers are modelled as independent Gaussian with separable variance profiles. It is shown in particular that the large antenna rate regions do not depend on the specific channel realization, but only on the channel transmit and receive covariance matrices. The theoretical results are corroborated by simulations.
