OFDM-based networks utilizing the frequency reuse factor of 1 may produce the severe ICI (intercell interference) at the cell boundary even though overall cell capacity is increased and network deployment is facilitated. In the forward-link, the ICI may rise above a QoS (quality of service) threshold beyond some distance from BSs (base stations). In this paper, we analyze the forward-link capacity of an MC-CDMA system as a function of the ICI according to the distance from a cell. To achieve this goal, a closed form of the outage probability is derived and utilized to obtain the accommodated number of users and system parameters.
