Chapter 23. Performance of 3G evolution

23.1. Performance Assessment

Computer simulations of mobile systems is a very powerful tool to assess the system performance. The ‘real life’ performance can, of course, be measured and evaluated in the field for an already deployed system and such values represent a valid example of performance for a certain system configuration. But there are several advantages with computer simulations:

  • Evaluation can be made of system concepts that are not deployed or still under development such as LTE.
  • There is full control of the environment, including propagation parameters, traffic, system lay-out, etc., and full traceability of all parameters affecting the result.
  • Well-controlled ‘experiments’ comparing similar ...
