In this paper we derive the sum rate of the uplink of a linear network of cells when clustered coordinated processing is adopted among the base stations in a generalised fading environment. Various cluster isolation schemes along with an interference allowance scheme are analysed and compared in terms of achievable sum rate with each other and to the optimum case of a system with central processor. Numerical results are produced for a real-world scenario.
