Resumen

In this paper, the downlink sector capacity of a cigar-shaped microcells using wideband code-division multiple-access (WCDMA) with soft hand-over (SHO) mode is analyzed. The two-slope propagation loss with log-normal shadowing is used in the analysis where a model of eight cigar-shaped microcells is utilized to calculate the downlink sector capacity. The performance of the downlink is studied for different sector radii, standard deviations of the shadowing and propagation exponents. It is found that, for a sector range higher than 940 m, increasing the sector range will reduce the downlink sector capacity. Also it is found that increasing the value of the propagation parameters will reduce the downlink sector capacity. In many cases, the downlink sector capacity will be code limited since the theoretical downlink sector capacity is higher than the number of codes assigned to each sector. The high theoretical downlink sector capacity is due to the low value (0.06–0.1) of the WCDMA orthogonality factor of rural zone microcells.
