Space-time coded OFDM is a promising scheme for future wideband multimedia wireless communication systems. The combination of space-time coding and OFDM modulation promises an enhanced performance in terms of power and spectral efficiency. However, STC transmit diversity impairs the system's interference suppression ability because each transmitter generates multiple signals that appear independent to the receiver antenna arrays. In this paper, we propose a novel CCI cancellation method employing angle diversity based on beamforming. it is shown that the proposed method can effectively mitigate CCI while preserving the space-time structure, thereby, significantly improving the system's interference suppression ability without significant performance degradation.
