Abstract

HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access) is introduced by the 3GPP Release 6 to enhance the UMTS uplink with higher data rates, reduced latency and increased capacity. This paper discusses the dimensioning of the backhaul resources on the ATM-based Iub interface in UMTS HSUPA networks. The main focuses of this paper is to (1) analyze the important factors that have influence on the transport network dimensioning and further investigate their impacts; (2) estimate the required backhaul bandwidth as a function of user QoS requirements; (3) discuss the impact when including HSDPA traffic on the downlink. In addition, this paper also provides insights of HSUPA air interface given diverse user applications as well as different number of users within one cell. The investigations and dimensioning are based on simulations.
