Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on the performance of cochannel interference (CCI) which is the primary factor to limit the capacity of wireless communication systems. Several cellular network architectures have been proposed in the literature to reduce the cochannel interference, but none of them appears to effectively tackle this problem. Microzoning is the technique, where the cells are further divided into smaller zones. The advantage of this technique is that the cochannel interference in the cellular system is reduced because the cell maintains a particular coverage radius. The objective of this paper is to analyze the performance of cochannel interference on the forward channels of the proposed microzone based CDMA cellular systems operating with perfect power control in an effort to reduce the cochannel interference. Simulation results showed that the proposed technique can effectively minimize cochannel interference and the proposed architecture can be used for practical applications.
