Abstract
This work focuses on the fairness in the distribution of the achievable rate per user in a cellular environment where clusters of base stations coordinate their transmissions in the downlink. Block Diagonalization is employed within the cluster to remove interference among users while the interference coming from other clusters remains. The probability distribution of the achievable rate per user shows a perfect match with a Gamma distribution so that a characterization in terms of mean and variance can provide a useful tool for the design of the clusters and the implementation of fairness strategies in a coordinated base station network with Block Diagonalization.
