This paper presents the computer simulation results on frequency reuse efficiency and soft handoff statistics in the CDMA forward link according to path loss and cell loading. The soft handoff threshold effect on the handoff statistics is also evaluated. The frequency reuse efficiency is not a fixed value but varying as function of distance from the home cell, path loss slopes, and cell loading. The total soft handoff pecentile ranges from 0.0 to 64.9 according to cell loading, even if path loss slope is constant.
