In this paper, we study the performance of base station (BS) cooperation for downlink transmission. Based on a modified Wyner multicell model, an opportunistic intra cell scheduling scheme is proposed. Then, we derive a closed-form expression for the sum-rate capacity of the proposed scheme in the Rayleigh flat-fading channel. Also, we prove that the opportunistic scheme can be regarded as providing a downlink beam-forming scheme to achieve a tighter lower bound for the downlink sum rate capacity. Numerical results confirm our theoretical analysis.
