Call Admission Control in HAP W-CDMA Cellular Systems


Among various radio sources which control different dependencies/functions, in this article, we will talk about the Call Admission Control (CAC), and we are supposed to confine our concentration on W-CDMA which is based on high raised platforms, since during the recent years remarkable amount of attention has been focused on platforms located in stratosphere layer [1]. Firstly, we study the capacity of uplink from HAP (High Altitude Platform) W-CDMA and we’ll work on estimation and power control defects in a new conversation added to current conversations. We’ll enhance the Call Admission Control (CAC) based on the side effects of power control defects and users’ stimulus and then compare the CAC which has been measured by using of momentary energy on bit in the spectral density form (Eb/N0). Then we examine the mentioned charts for two different criteria which the decision will be made by these criteria in order to decide if exchanged calls are to be admitted or not. The first criterion is based on the minimum of (Eb/N0) of the first row cells meanwhile the second criterion is based on the average of (Eb/N0) of first row-cells.
