Extensive use of mobile applications throws many challenges in cellular systems like cell edge throughput, inter cell interference and spectral e�ciency. Many of these challenges have been resolved using Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP), developed in the Third Generation Partnership Project for LTE-Advanced) to a great extent. CoMP cooperatively process signals from base sta- tions that are connected to various multiple terminals (user equipment (UEs)) at transmission and reception. This CoMP improves throughput, reduces or even removes inter-cell interference and increases spectral e�ciency in the downlink of multi-antenna coordinated multipoint systems. Many researchers addressed these issues assuming that BSs have the knowledge of the common control channels dedicated to all UEs and also about the full or partial channel state information (CSI) of all the links. From the CSI available at the BSs, multiuser interference can be managed at the BSs. To make this feasible, UEs are responsible for collecting downlink CSI. But, CSI measurement (instantaneous and/or statistical) is imperfect in nature because of the randomly varying nature of the channels at random times. These incorrect CSI values available at the BSs may, in turn, create multi-user interference. There are many techniques to suppress the multi-user interference, among which the feedback scheme is the one which is gaining a lot of attention. In feedback schemes, CSI information needs to be fed back to the base station from UEs in the uplink. It is obvious, the question arises on the type and amount of feedback need to be used. Research has been progressing in this front and some feedback techniques have been proposed. Three basic CoMP Feedback schemes are available. Explicit or statistical channel information feedback scheme in which channel information like channels's covariance matrix of the channel are shared between the transmitter and receiver. Next, implicit or statistical channel information feedback which contains information such as Channel quality indication or Precoding matrix indicator or Rank indicator. 1st applied to TDD LTE type structure and 2nd of feedback scheme can be applied in the FDD system. Finally, we have UE which tranmit the sounding reference signal (CSI). This type of feedback scheme is applied to exploit channel reciprocity and to reduce channel intercell interference and this can be applied in the TDD system. We have analyzed the scenario of LTE TDD based system. After this, optimization of power is also required because users at the cell edge required more attention than the user locating at the center of the cell. In my work, it shows estimated power gives exponential divercity for high SNR as low SNR too. In this method, a compression feedback method is analyzed to provide multi-cell spatial channel information. It improves the feedback e�ciency and throughput. The rows and columns of the channel matrix are compressed using Eigenmode of the user and codebook based scheme speci�ed in LTE speci�cation. The main drawback of this scheme is that spectral e�ciency is achieved with the cost of increased overheads for feedback and evolved NodeB (eNB). Other factor is complexity of eNodeB which is to be addressed in future work.
