Abstract

This paper details a simulator, RANSim, that was developed to model the data transmission process of a faded DS-CDMA radio channel in a Radio Access Network (RAN). The results are graphs depicting the slot success rate as a function of the number of interfering users and the packet throughput as a function of the offered load of the system. The slot success rate is dependent on the state of the channel during the slot transmission period and the average packet throughput is a good indicator of the performance of the channel.
