A multiuser massive MIMO system with mutual coupling is investigated in finite-dimensional channel scenarios. The uplink ergodic achievable rate is analytically derived for a multiuser massive MIMO system equipped with a rectangular planar uniform antenna array at the base station (BS). Numerical results show that the mutual coupling effect reduces the uplink achievable rate of multiuser massive MIMO systems when the antenna distance decreases. But when the size of the antenna array is fixed, the uplink achievable rate increases with the growing of antenna number.
