Recently, we proposed a multi-user spatial multiplexing technique called the minimum mean square error filtering combined with singular value decomposition (MMSE-SVD) for a distributed multiple input multiple output (MIMO) network. Multi-user MMSE-SVD applies the MMSE filter at macro base station (MBS) to suppress inter-user interference (IUI) and inter-antenna interference (IAI), while the eigenmode filter constructed by SVD at user equipments (UEs) to suppress IAI. To improve the link capacity in multi-cell environment, the inter-cell interference (ICI) from adjacent macro-cells is taken into account in generating the MMSE filter. In this paper, we apply multi-user MMSE-SVD with ICI information to OFDM downlink and SC uplink to discuss the impact of number of multiplexed UEs.
