Theoretical Models for UMTS Radio Network

The aim of this chapter is to provide an in-depth analysis of theoretical modelling approaches in UMTS radio network planning. It constitutes a key chapter in this part of the book related to modelling, and many herein discussed aspects will be utilised in later chapters. The exposure of the subject is structured such that we deal with modelling approaches in a layered manner, i.e. we will commence with theoretical antenna and link level modelling and proceed then with static and dynamic system level modelling. A set of parameters is exchanged between these models, where antenna patterns and link level results have a direct impact onto the performance of system level simulations, whereas system simulator settings are required to determine the operating conditions of the link level simulator.
