2.3.5 HSDPA Capacity Dimensioning
For HSDPA capacity dimensioning, average HSDPA cell throughput can be calculated based on available
resources like power and codes for HSDPA and average cell radius. The following figure shows the
procedure.

Code for

Ior/Ioc distribution

Figure 2-17 HSDPA capacity dimensioning
Based on the input cell radius, the Ior/Ioc (Ior and Ioc are the received power spectrum density of own cell
and other cell respectively and hence the ratio of Ior/Ioc reflects the distance between UE and NodeB) and
its probability distribution could be gotten from simulation. For any Ior/Ioc, the Ec/Io based on the input
HSDPA power could be calculated by the following formula:
Ec
Ec
Ec / Ior
=
=
Io α * Ior + Ioc α + Ioc / Ior

Once the Ec/Io is calculated, the corresponding throughput can be gotten based on the relation simulation
results between Ec/Io and throughput.
Therefore, the cell average throughput can be calculated by the following formula:
ThCell =

∑ Ratek × Pr obIocIor _ k

Of course, the required power of HSDPA to guarantee HSDPA cell average throughput requirement can
also be calculated.

2.3.6 HSUPA Capacity Dimensioning
Similar with capacity dimensioning of HSDPA, average HSUPA cell throughput for input load or the load
needed by HSUPA to achieve certain throughput can be calculated.

Huawei UMTS RAN12.0 Dimensioning Rules
The following figure shows the procedure of calculating HSUPA cell throughput from input load.

Figure 2-18 HSUPA capacity dimensioning
Given the distance between UE and NodeB, the Ec/N0 can be calculated with the same procedure of
HSUPA link budget. HSUPA user data rate could be gotten by the relations between cell radius and the
HSUPA throughput, and then we need to calculate the uplink HSUPA cell throughput by the following
formulas:

ThCell = ∑ Ratek ×

Sk
S

Where,

Ratek is the HSUPA throughput at specified cell radius
Sk is coverage area of infinitesimal circles at specified cell radius
S is the total coverage area of the cell
The basic principle of this formula are: if we divide the cell coverage area into many concentric circles
with infinitesimal radius, then the coverage area of all given concentric circles Sk and the whole cell
coverage area S could also be calculated. Consequently, HSUPA cell average throughput can be
calculated.
It should be noted that maximum transmission power of UE should be a limit for the calculation of Ec/No
calculation. If we assume maximum available uplink load for HSUPA is η HSUPA , then the maximum
Ec/No achieved with this maximum given loading could be calculated by this formula:
η HSUPA =

1+ f
1
1+
Ec / N 0

So the final Ec/N0 of HSUPA would be the minimum value of both of them. As a result, the final Ratek for
HSUPA cell average throughout calculation in the above formula should be the minimum value of them.

2.3.7 MBMS Capacity Dimensioning
MBMS service has two kind of working mode: PTP (point to point), PTM (point to multi-point), PTP is
borne on the DCH or HSDPA, so the capacity dimensioning of PTP mode is the same to R99 and HSDPA.
We just detail the PTM mode capacity dimensioning here.
The procedure of MBMS capacity dimensioning is showed in the following figure:

Figure 2-19 MBMS Dimensioning Procedure
Power consumption for each MBMS channel at air interface can be calculated by the following formula:

AMBMS = (10 PL − MBMS / 10 ) /(10 PBS / 10 )

(17)

Where,

AMBMS is the loading for each MBMS channel at air interface
PL − MBMS is the power consumption for per MBMS channel, this can be calculated via link budget with
specified bearer and cell radius requirement.

PBS is the total power of NodeB
If we take N links as the MBMS channels at air interface per cell, assume that the MBMS channels are
average distributed in all carriers per cell, so the MBMS channels per cell per carrier at air interface can
be gotten by N links / carriers.
Thus the total loading of all the MBMS channels within one cell can be calculated by the following
formula:

Load MBMS = AMBMS * ( N links / carriers )

(18)

Where,

Load MBMS is the total loading consumption of MBMS services

The uplink configuration of RACH can be 1 or 2 for each cell. this value is different with different Iub transport technology from ATM to IP. where the common transport bearer is shared over Iub. The Iub bandwidth for downlink CCH depends on the configurations of FACH and PCH. IubOthers _ UL ) Iub bandwidth of other is composed of 3 parts: Iub Bandwidth for Common Channel.
