Abstract:  This paper presents an adaptive admission control
(AC) strategy for WCDMA multicellular networks which
employ antenna arrays (AAs) at the base station (BS). The
adaptive AC strategy generates beams that focus the transmitted
power in the directions of desired users, thus minimizing
interference and increasing capacity. A WCDMA system
level simulator has been developed in order to evaluate the
performance of the proposed adaptive AC strategy by means
of Monte Carlo(MC) simulations. Results for different traffic
scenarios with up to four tiers of interfering cells show that a
network with the adaptive AC strategy can achieve almost
two times higher throughput per beam when compared to the
traditional AC in a multirate multicellular environment with
hotspot areas.
