Chapter 13 Reverse and Forward Link Capacity of IS-95 CDMA System

13.1 Introduction

The CDMA system is an interference-limited system in which link performance depends on the ability of the receiver to detect a signal in the presence of interference. In order for a CDMA link to perform satisfactorily, the designer must specify a frame error rate (FER). Field trials help the designer to establish the required Eb/It values on the reverse link and various channels of the forward link that will maintain the specified FER. The key issue in CDMA network design is to minimize multiple access interference. Power control is critical to reduce multiaccess interference. Designers must include the interference from other cells in the system to determine ...
