The purpose of this report is to investigate the performance, measured interms of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of a UMTS radio network(UTRAN) under different traffic and mobility scenarios (i.e.homogeneously/ non homogeneously distributed traffic, mobile/non-mobile traffic) and develop some general guidelines for dimensioning theUMTS network optimally.In this work, simulations are performed using the Wines simulator, whichis a dynamic simulator that models all the radio-resource managementfunctionality of the UTRAN. Two main series of experiments have beenperformed. In the first series simulations have been performed on ananalysis area defined in common agreement with international colleaguesat Vodafone. The distribution of the traffic in this simulation scenario ishomogeneous and the main purpose is to find capacity figures whenincreasing the traffic density of one of the four possible defined services(WWW, FTP, voice and video-call) and also with a given traffic mixinvolving all services together. Two mobility profiles are used (pedestrianand vehicular).In the second series of experiments, a more realistic scenario, based ondetailed geographical characteristics relevant for signal propagation, andtraffic densities based on traffic maps, has been simulated. The purposewas to analyze the possible differences in capacity between the “ideal” model and the more “realistic” model.For the single-service scenario analysis, circuit-switched services (speechand video-call), it can be observed that the capacity is mainly uplink-limited. The corresponding results for the packet-switched services (FTP,WEB) have shown that capacity is mostly downlink-limited, as it wasexpected due to the more asymmetrical data rates in the downlinkcompared to the uplink for both services.For the service mix analysis in both scenarios (homogeneous and nonhomogeneous) it was found that the capacity is mostly downlink-limited(i.e. the downlink power target level is exceeded before the uplink loadtarget level).In terms of the power-rule usage, no significant differences between thetwo analyzed rules were found, provided that the downlink path lossbetween the Node B connector and the antenna is below 4 dB in all thesites.Finally, for the mobility study in both scenarios (homogeneous, nonhomogeneous) the theoretically expected behavior was confirmed.
