Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

For a two operator WCDMA indoor scenario, we observe dead zones of poor coverage on the downlink corresponding to areas near a cell boundary where a competitor base station is located. Both the uplink and downlink capacity are reduced, but the effect is quite small in percentage terms. However, there is an influence on the cell coverage, i.e. the interference restricts where traffic can be supported. The primary reason for the inter-operator interference is shown to be the adjacent channel leakage and the adjacent channel selectivity associated with the mobile terminal
