Abstract: High speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) is an add-on technology for W-CDMA that allows higher downlink data rates and greater base station capacity. With HSDPA, W-CDMA systems, which today are seemingly stuck at 384 kbps, will be able to shift gears and move ahead to so-called 3.5G performance with over 10 Mbps throughput on the downlink. The incorporation of HSDPA in Release 5 of the 3GPP W-CDMA specification is the most significant change on the RF side since Release 99. Advanced techniques such as adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) and hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) are used to modify the coding and physical layer parameters adaptively in response to the instantaneous channel quality, thus enabling gains in spectral efficiency and data rates. On the other hand, such improvements also bring a higher complexity degree in the evaluation of the radio subsystem performance. This evaluation is crucial for operators who are willing to provide value-added services with rich multimedia contents. This thesis aims at implementing and simulating a radio access network on a real geographic area using the HSDPA features. Results show that such features enable to satisfy the quality of service requirements needed to support the new data-oriented services.
