Call Capacity for GSM, CDMA, UMTS etc - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.


 Post subject: Call Capacity for GSM, CDMA, UMTS etc
Posted: Wed Aug 31, 2005 8:54 pm 
Hi,
I understand that the capacity for wireless standards is not a well defined number especially for the CDMA based ones. However, if I have to specify a generic number for all the major standards, what would be these numbers? I am not asking for call capacity per MHz that relates to a Site Capacity etc. I am referring to the basic capacity(number of users per channel). It would be benificial if some one can give a technology specific capacity for the following:
GSM ?
CDMA2000
CDMA1x
EVDO ( though we dont have a certain number since the users are both voice and data users)
UMTS
iDEN

Further, now that we have many vocoders being used in different technologies that enhance the call capacity for these standards, what would be the capacity then? I certainly dont want to go with the numbers that were there when the standards were formed. Rather, a more current information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all.
Daver Malik
