1. A wireless communication system comprising:
a first access point that forms a first wireless area; and
a second access point that forms a second wireless area,
wherein the first access point including:
a receiver configured to receive, from a terminal which is a candidate for scheduling by the second access point, information indicating a state of a communication channel between the terminal and the first access point; and
a scheduler configured to control scheduling of a terminal located in the first wireless area based on the received information, the terminal located in the first wireless area being different from the terminal which is the candidate for scheduling by the second access point,
wherein the scheduling includes allocation of a wireless resource to communication with the terminal and determination of the direction of a beam used for formation of the first wireless area and used for the allocated wireless resource to be any one of a plurality of directions, and
the control includes control of a ratio of a wireless resource for which the beam in each direction is used to a wireless resource in the first wireless area based on a state of a communication channel between a terminal located in the first wireless area and the first access point and the state of the communication channel between the terminal, which is located in the second wireless area and which is the candidate, and the first access point.
