This paper provides an overview of the methodology used in the performance assessment of the 64QAM and MIMO HSDPA features in a macro-cellular environment. The paper describes how the geometry experienced by end users could be measured in a live HSPA network, and how this could be used together with link level simulations to perform a first assessment of performance expectation of both MIMO and 64QAM.
