Description: This presentation discusses flexible allocation of capacity in multi-cell CDMA networks. The effect of reverse power levels on the capacity of a code-division multiple-access (CDMA) cellular network is evaluated. The inter-cell and intra-cell interferences of every cell on every other cell are first calculated for a given network topology. Based on this, the nominal power of users is increased by a factor the authors call the Power Compensation Factor (PCF) which enables small cells to overcome the excessive interference from adjacent large cells.
