This paper presents carrier capacity at the sector level and end user performance based on rate request distributions for a carrier 1xEV-DO Rev. A system using Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson-Nortel Radio Access Network (RAN) during “busy hour”. A chart showcasing testing results for each DRC rate, corresponding forward link radio link protocol (RLP) sector data volume, drive test application layer throughput and number of active network users was generated for capacity dimensioning of EVDO Rev A. radio frequency carrier.
