CDMA output results description

In order to make use to the full extent of the information provided by SEAMCAT GUI interface, the attached document(2 MB) presents and also provides you with guidance and explanation on how to interpret the results of the CDMA simulations.

Condusting CDMA simulation can be divided into four logical parts:

  1. Pre-simulation parts: The GUI is used to assist you when configuring the workspace. All CDMA specific GUI elements are available as part of either the Victim Link or the Interfering Link configuration dialogs.
  2. Simulation parts: Simulation GUI elements are shown during the simulation and are used to provide information about what SEAMCAT is doing. Since CDMA simulation can take much longer than “classic/traditional” (i.e. non-CDMA) SEAMCAT simulations there are special GUI parts used to provide information to the user.

Example of the CDMA DL capacity finding status

  1. Results: Once SEAMCAT has completed the simulation, the results are shown as displayed in Figure below when the CDMA network is the victim. This figure presents the difference between the 2 power balancing process (1-initial power balancing, 2- power balancing after introduction of an external interference). Note that when CDMA is interferer and the victim is “classic/traditional” (i.e. non-CDMA) SEAMCAT link there are no special CDMA results (except insight into the CDMA network simulated for the last snapshot).

Example of the CDMA results display panel

  1. Detailed information on the last snapshot: After a simulation these GUI parts are used to provide access to calculated results but also detailed insight into the last snapshot of the simulation. Inspecting the last snapshot is considered a good way to validate the configuration of the simulated workspace.

This document is a complement to the user manual on the CDMA simulation algorithms that can be found at which was a compilation of STG(03)12rev1 and STG(03)13rev1.
