This paper presents an analytical approach to HSDPA radio interface dimensioning based on specific requirements for throughput and exploited downlink transmission power. The proposed method derives the maximum HSDPA throughput achievable in a cell with the actual radio resources, or the power needed for HSDPA to provide the required average or minimum user data rate at a given coverage probability. Simple rules for HSDPA admission and load control are also disclosed, and the impact of HSDPA on radio link budget is pointed out.
