In cellular systems, it is important to design service areas appropriately for providing various services. In existing cellular systems, service areas are evaluated based on the measurements of radio link qualities, such as Signal to Interference and Noise power Ratio (SINR). The 3rd Generation cellular systems select the optimum data rate for each user in accordance with the varying radio link quality using Adaptive Modulation and Coding (AMC) scheme and Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ). Therefore, it is required to consider communication service qualities, such as throughput, for designing their service areas. This paper proposes a method which estimates the maximum throughput performance by using average and standard deviation of received SINR. This method considers the performance improvement by packet combining schemes of HARQ, which are Chase Combining (CC) and Incremental Redundancy (IR).
