This paper focuses on the MC-CDMA (Multi Carrier-Code Division Multiple Access) with the MMSEC (Minimum Mean Square Error Combining) receiver, which is a good candidate of a transmission scheme for beyond 3G systems. This paper evaluates the forward link capacity using the MMSEC receiver in the MC-CDMA cellular system, which employs TDM (Time Division Multiplex) transmission for multiple users. In this paper, the PDF (Probability Distribution Function) of the SINR (Symbol to Interference plus Noise energy Ratio) after MMSEC under multi-cell environment are calculated with the various number of the code division multiplexes. Based on the PDF, the numerical relation can be derived between the peak rate of the adaptive transmission and the average transmission rate per sector.
