Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is an optimal technique for high-speed transmission. In this paper, a multicell multiuser OFDM system with adaptive subcarrier allocation and adaptive modulation is considered. We propose an adaptive subcarrier, bit and power allocation algorithm to maximum the total throughput of the multicell system in the presence of cochannel interference (CCI), frequency selective Rayleigh fading and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). Its performance in a multicell system with different number of users is investigated through simulation. It is shown from the simulation that this adaptive allocation algorithm enhances the throughput of OFDM systems as compared to equal power allocation and is suitable for multiuser system.
