Linear precoding techniques are designed for both joint and distributed Multi-Cell Processing (MCP), where both centralised and decentralised Channel State Information (CSI) exchange scenarios are considered. The outage rate of various linear precoding techniques is investigated in the cell-edge area of a practical three-cell based cooperative scenario under both fully-loaded and lightly-loaded system configurations, when encountering either no tier-one Co-Channel Interference (CCI) or full tier-one CCI. The numerical results demonstrate the superiority of the low-complexity, yet scalable decentralised Distributed Signal-to-Leakage-Noise-Ratio (DSLNR) based linear precoding technique under realistic CSI quantisation and channel-induced feedback error conditions when full tier-one CCI is considered.
