Abstract

Both microdiversity and macrodiversity can effectively overcome the harmful effects of fading in CDMA systems. Most previous work has focused on their effects on the reverse link in CDMA systems; however, their effects on the forward link are less well understood. This paper presents an analytical model for the CDMA forward-link capacity with H-port macrodiversity and H-port microdiversity. The numerical results show that both diversity types improve the forward link capacity. However, macrodiversity provides higher capacity obtained at the cost of more complexity.
