A Simulation Agent for Efficient Network Evaluation in 3G Cellular Mobile Radio Planning

Free registration required

Executive Summary

An accurate procedure for evaluating the strong correlation and conflicting goals of coverage, capacity and Quality of Service (QoS) is required for efficient planning of 3G radio networks. In this paper, the authors explore and implement an agent-based simulation methodology which allows for the fine-tuning of the input model parameters to study and evaluate the performance of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) systems. The results obtained are represented graphically to show scenarios for both uplink and downlink limited CDMA. The analysis is extended to demonstrate how Tower Mounted Amplifiers (TMA) can be used to benefit the uplink performance of a 1X EV - D0 data system.
