Abstract

A dynamic radio network simulator is implemented for studying WCDMA based hierarchical cell structures. The simulator allows estimation of capacity and quality of service related issues in a two-layer network (microcells and macrocells). The input to the simulator is base station and mobile station information and its output is presented as the blocking and dropping probabilities, handoff rate and capacity of the assumed network. Both uplink and downlink are considered. As an example, the impact of between-layer handover on the capacity is investigated. The whole simulator is based entirely on visual C++ software.
