MMSE-BASED RECEIVER BEHAVIOUR IN HANDOVER SITUATIONS - Study of Intercell Interference

João Carlos Silva, Nuno Souto, Francisco Cercas, Rui Dinis

Abstract

This paper focuses on the use of an equalization-based receiver for WCDMA (Wideband Code-Division Multiple Access) in an inter-cellular environment, for handover studies. The receiver is based on the MMSE (Minimum Mean Square Error) algorithm and uses the UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) standard as a basis, alongside the reference UMTS environments.
