WCDMA Uplink Interference Assessment from Multiple High Altitude Platform Configurations
EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking volume 2008, Article number: 182042 (2008)
We investigate the possibility of multiple high altitude platform (HAP) coverage of a common cell area using a wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) system. In particular, we study the uplink system performance of the system. The results show that depending on the traffic demand and the type of service used, there is a possibility of deploying 3–6 HAPs covering the same cell area. The results also show the effect of cell radius on performance and the position of the multiple HAP base stations which give the worst performance.
