We present a novel frequency partitioning technique of fractional frequency reuse (FFR) that reduces the effect of co-channel interference and increases the capacity of OFDM systems. The usable sub-channel sets are classified into the common sub-channel sets for all cells and the dedicated sub-channel sets for specific cell types in FFR. The proposed fractional frequency reuse with ordering scheme (FFRO) can decrease the amount of interference in the common sub-channel sets by specially designing the sub-channel sets and the order of sub-channel assignment for specific cell types. Simulation results show that the proposed FFRO yields enhanced performance for both uniform and non-uniform distributions of traffic load.
