Capacity of Broadband CDMA in the Millimeter-Wave Band
A cellular code-division multiple access (CDMA) system operating in the 63-64 GHz band for short-range communications is studied and analyzed. The system capacity, expressed as the maximum number of users per cell, is analytically derived and favorably compared with other CDMA schemes operating in conventional frequency bands (i.e. below 2 GHz). It turns out that the use of 63–64 GHz band significantly increases the capacity of a CDMA network, and proves to be suitable for cellular systems, personal communication networks (PCNs) and wireless broadband access (ISDN).
