Multibeam systems with hundreds of beams have been recently deployed in order to provide higher capacities by employing fractional frequency reuse. Furthermore, employing full frequency reuse and precoding over multiple beams has shown great throughput potential in literature. However, feeding all this data from a single gateway is not feasible based on the current frequency allocations. In this context, we investigate a range of scenarios involving beam clusters where each cluster is managed by a single gateway. More specifically, the following cases are considered for handling intercluster interference: a) conventional frequency colouring, b) joint processing within cluster, c) partial CSI sharing among clusters, d) partial CSI and data sharing among clusters. CSI sharing does not provide considerable performance gains with respect to b) but combined with data sharing offers roughly a 40% improvement over a) and a 15% over b).
