ON THE W-CDMA UPLINK CAPACITY AND INTERFERENCE STATISTICS OF CIGAR-SHAPED MICROCELLS IN OVER-GROUND TRAIN SERVICE WITH IMPERFECT POWER CONTROL
Keywords:W-CDMA, Cells capacity, Shadowing
The capacity and the interference statistics of the sectors of the shaped W-CDMA microcells are studied. A model of five micro-cells is used to analyze the uplink. The capacity and the interference statistics of the microcell are studied for different antenna sidelobe levels and different sector range. From the study we can distinguish between two extreme cases (the best case and the worst one).
