In this paper, a concept of virtual smart antenna (SA) is introduced for OFDM-based cellular systems with a frequency reuse factor equal to 1. An estimation method of intercell symbol timing offsets (STOs) from received OFDM signals impinging on virtual antenna is proposed for users at a cell boundary. Also, adaptive beamforming methods for virtual SA are proposed to reduce intercell interference (ICI) from adjacent base stations (BSs).
