We consider the applications of multicell transmission schemes to the downlink of future wireless communication networks. A multicell multiple-input multiple output-(MIMOs) based scheme with limited coordination among neighboring base stations (BSs) is proposed to effectively combat the intercell interference by taking advantage of the degreesoffreedom in the spatial domain. In this scheme, mobile users are required to feedback channel-related information to both serving base station and

The performance of the proposed scheme is investigated through theoretical analysis as well as system level simulations. Both results suggest that the so-called "intercell interference coordination through limited feedback" scheme is a very good candidate for improving the cell-edge user throughput as well as the average cell throughput of the future wireless communication networks.
