The application of millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum for the next generation broadband communications has received significant attention recently. In this work, we investigate the performance limits for the coexistence of the geo-stationary orbit (GEO) broadband satellite networks and terrestrial mmWave cellular networks. Based on the assumption that the statistical channel state information (SCSI) is available at the terrestrial base station (BS), we propose a virtual uplink based transmit

Furthermore, we derive the closed-form expressions for the outage probability (OP) and ergodic capacity (EC) of the terrestrial user. Besides, the asymptotic OP expression at high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is also developed in terms of diversity order and array gain of the terrestrial user. Finally, numerical results are given to confirm the validity of the proposed BF scheme and theoretical derivations, and reveal the impact of key parameters on the performance of the terrestrial user coexisting with the multiple satellite users.
