It is important to improve a cell-edge throughput of next generation mobile communication systems. Frequency reuse schemes such as three-cell reuse or fractional frequency reuse are suitable for achieving this goal. Another candidate is multi-link transmission; signals on different sub-carriers from adjacent base stations are received by a mobile. However, the orthogonality of these signals can collapse if a frequency offset between adjacent base stations is excessive; this loss triggers adjacent-channel interference. This paper proposes an interference canceller to solve this problem and confirms the effectiveness of the method through numerical analysis and computer simulations.
