"Performance Analysis Of A Single UMTS Cell"
European Wireless 2000, Dresden, 13-14 September, 2000


Performance analysis of multi service UMTS networks is of major interest for mobile network providers. Because of the W-CDMA technique used in UMTS, which leeds to an interference limited system with a dynamic cell capacity and load dependent cell coverage, the service mix has a big influence on the system performance. The aim of this paper is to provide a detailed description of the performance relevant mechanisms for the uplink of a single UMTS cell and to extract capacity bounds for single and multi service operation. We propose a simplified calculation model for the multi service case, based on the number of users of different radio link services.
