The capacity analysis of CDMA forward link is required to allocate high data-rate users. To solve this problem, we analyze the capacity of the CDMA forward link based on optimum power control. In a multi-cell environment, the intracell interference and intercell interference are derived. To show the capacity impact of high data-rate users, we introduce a location dependent factor, which is the ratio of intercell interference to intracell interference. Considering the location dependent factor, we propose a coordinated allocation scheme that can be used to allocate high data-rate users in sectorized cells. As a result, we show the capacity impact of high data-rate users according to location variations. The outage probability can be decreased when the coordinated allocation scheme is applied.
