This paper proposes a new enhanced Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR) scheme to improve the system performance in multi-cell orthogonal frequency division multiple access system, which tackles the problems of frequency distribution and Inter-Cell Interference (ICI) by jointly FFR and ICI coordination. The proposed scheme dynamically assigns subcarriers to center and edge groups depending on load conditions and the channel state information by two algorithms. The center allocation algorithm assigns subcarriers to center users from different directions.
