In this paper, we propose an integrated cross-layer optimization framework for resource allocation over a multi-user MIMO system using Transmit Group MMSE (Tx-GMMSE) at the base station. We adopt the full-rate full-diversity orthogonal STBC in the multi-user Tx-GMMSE physical layer allowing a flexible tradeoff of spatial multiplexing (for spectral efficiency) and full rate spatial diversity (for protection against packet outage) with various number of antenna groupings. The proposed cross-layer
