Advantages of CDMA Handoff

It is “soft”, meaning that communication is not interrupted by the handoff. This is sometimes called “make before break.” This means fewer dropped calls for users and higher customer satisfaction

Handoff Candidate Classification in CDMA

The mobile station continuously searches for Pilots to detect the presence of other CDMA signals that have the same carrier frequency and measures the strength (received Ec/Nt) of the pilots. 

How to Reverse Access Channel Work in CDMA?

Reverse Access Channel used by MS Initiate Communication or Respond to Paging Channel. A reverse channel is first spread with WALSH to 307.2Kbps and then becomes 1.2288Mcps after long code

Forward Traffic Channel of CDMA

Forward Traffic Channel is used to Transmit Data and Signaling Information. Symbol repetition makes symbol streams at different rates adapted to those at the rate of 19.2k. The original symbol

What is Work of Paging Channel in CDMA?

The paging channel transmits: System parameters message Access parameters Neighbors list CDMA channels list message The paging channel accomplishes: Paging to MS Assign traffic channel to MS The frame length

How Sync Channel work in CDMA?

A long code is used for scrambling. However, a long code has too long a period, which cannot be wholly used for scrambling. We can only sample some chips of

What is Basic work of Pilot Channel in CDMA?

A pilot channel: Assist mobile station to be connected with CDMA network Handles multi-path searching Provide the phase reference for coherent demodulation and help the mobile station estimate the transmission

Transmit Diversity of CDMA

Diversity technology means that after receiving two or more input signals with mutually uncorrelated fading at the same time, the system demodulates these signals and adds them up. Thus, the

What is T_ADD,T_DROP and T_TDROP in CDMA?

Pilot Detection Threshold (T_ADD) Any Pilot that is strong but is not in the Handoff Direction Message is a source of interference. This Pilot should be immediately moved into the
