Downlink multi-point transmission as a capacity enhancement method for the users at cell edge and the operators is studied in this paper. It is based on the so-called aggregate base station architecture using distributed antennas and cloud computing. Its advantages are analyzed by both its architectural side and simulation. The simulation results show that the capacity may be affected by the number of cell belonging to an aggregate base station and by the parameters related to the operation of it.
