In this chapter, we initiate discussion on CDMA network capacity. The issue will be revisited again later in Chapter 13 to include additional parameters in a more comprehensive way.
8.1 CDMA NETWORK CAPACITY
For initial estimation of CDMA network capacity, we start with a simple example of single cell network with n users and signal parameters deﬁned as in the list above. If αi is the power ratio of user i and the reference user with index 0, and Ni is the interference power density produced by user i deﬁned as αi = Pi /P0 , i = 1, . ....
