The inter-cell interference between uplinks and downlinks in CDMA packet communication systems, employing a shared-TDD scheme, is evaluated under cellular environments. It is found that interference between base stations rarely degrades uplink throughput, but interference between mobile stations substantially degrades downlink throughput. A transmission power control scheme is proposed to improve the downlink throughput. The proposed scheme increases the transmission power of downlink packets when they are re-transmitted, and thus, improves the signal-to-interference ratio of the downlink re-transmission packets. Computer simulation shows that this scheme increases downlink throughput without sacrificing the uplink throughput until the uplink throughput reaches a maximum value.
