In this paper, the authors address the issue of cellular OFDMA networks dimensioning. Network design consists of evaluating cell coverage and capacity and may involve many parameters related to environment, system configuration, and Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. In order to quickly study the impact of each of these parameters, analytical formulas are needed. The key function for network dimensioning is the Signal to Interference Ratio (SIR) distribution. They, thus analyze in an original way the traditional issue of deriving outage probabilities in OFDMA cellular networks.
