Recently, a quasi-orthogonal space-time block code (QSTBC) capable of achieving a significant fraction of the outage mutual information of a multiple-input-multiple output (MIMO) wireless communication system for the case of four transmit and one receive antennas was proposed. We generalize these results to 2(n) transmit and an arbitrary number of receive antennas. Furthermore, we derive an analytical lower bound for the fraction of outage probability achieved with QSTBC and show that this bound is tight for low signal-to-noise-ratios (SNR) values and also for increasing number of receive antennas. We present also an upper bound, which is tight for high SNR values and derive analytical expressions for the case of four transmit antennas. Furthermore, by utilizing the special structure of the QSTBC we propose a new transmit strategy, which decouples the signals transmitted from different antennas in order to detect the symbols separately with a linear ML-detector rather than joint detection, an up to now only known advantage of orthogonal space-time codes (OSTBC).
