A DYNAMIC SYSTEM-LEVEL SIMULATION TOOL FOR UMTS FDD

Nuno Cota, António Rodrigues

Abstract

This paper presents a tool for dynamic simulation of radio resources in UMTS FDD. The developed tool provides an integrated environment for users scenario definition, environment edition, base stations planning, simulation and analysis. This tool can also be used to evaluate the impact of new services, different system settings or new subscriber profiles, in the system’s global performance. For implementing the different mechanisms of WCDMA radio technology, the simulation tool kernel was supported by a system-level, dynamic, stochastic and event driven simulation model. Both uplink and downlink directions are considered, including soft handover connections. The final results confirm the developed tool validity and its good functionality in relation to simulation scenario definition, simulation and analysis phases.
