Abstract: Before the establishment of the UMTS network, operators are obliged to make the planning process to ensure a better quality of service (QOS) for mobile stations belonging to WCDMA cells. This process consists of estimating a set of parameters characterizing the radio cell in the downlink direction. Among them, we are interested in the Node B total required power PTot, and the maximum cell capacity, in the case of voice only and in the case of voice/video. To implement the effect of the other-cell interferences power, modeled as a fraction fDL of the own-cell received power, on various radio parameters described previously, we focused our study on two different scenarios: the first is based on an isolated cell and the second, on multiple cells. In addition, when the WCDMA cell reaches its maximum capacity, the introduction of admission control algorithms is essential to maintain the QOS of the ongoing mobile stations. For this purpose, we have proposed an admission control algorithm, based both on the Node B total required power and the cell loading factor. This algorithm gives rigorous results compared to the existing ones in the literature.
