An ICI (Inter-Cell Interference) mitigation algorithm for exploiting macroscopic diversity for an up-link OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) system is proposed. To reduce the influence of carrier collision, the order of resource allocation is coordinated based on the location of each MS (Mobile Station) and the associated carrier group. This consideration significantly reduces ICI and enhances throughput at the boundary region.
