This letter proposes a method for choosing the best quantized beamforming vector that represents a subcarrier group, for coordinated beamforming in the downlink of multiuser multiple input multiple output-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing systems. The correlation between subcarriers is exploited for reducing the feedforward overhead, while maximizing the sum rate.
