This paper considers an optimized limited feedback design for a multi-antenna system serving multiple users under different types of channels: Rayleigh distributed and line-of-sight distributed channels. Since the users are asymmetric, we propose an optimized feedback bandwidth allocation scheme for users under a total feedback rate constraint. The allocation scheme is designed according to the long-term channel type information of users, and thus it can be efficiently implemented. Numerical results verify the effectiveness of our proposed scheme.
