We derive the Linear Minimum Mean Square Error (LMMSE) receiver for Wyner's model of a linear cellular array. By exploiting the special structure of the channel model, we obtain explicit Mean Square Error (MSE) expressions and information capacity formulae for both finite-sized as well as infinite-sized linear cellular arrays. We show that the performance of an individual user becomes insensitive to the array size for large array sizes and that the proportion of users achieving almost the same performance converges to one, as the array size tends to infinity. The effects of intercell interference and noise on the performance of each user are also investigated.
