Although UTRA-UMTS foresees smart antennas operation, they have not been applied yet, due to their complexity and cost. This paper describes the implementation of a smart antenna prototype, focusing on the set-up module that allows the system to have a transparent behaviour regarding the Node-B. The implemented set-up module identifies the new users in the system, and it obtains the parameters that are needed by other processing modules. This paper describes the implemented steps for the identification and acquisition of user data. Furthermore, the results for a real time implementation in a DSP platform are presented, showing that the data are properly obtained and real time requirements are fulfilled.
