In wideband code division multiaccess (W-CDMA) uplink, immediate accommodation of high data rate packet causes power control error and makes active users' signal quality deteriorate in a beginning of a frame. To avoid the deterioration, we propose a new radio resource management (RRM) which accommodates high data rate traffic gradually in several frames. The proposed RRM reduces the signal quality deterioration in the beginning of the frame. We also propose an effective power control scheme, where a power increase command is sent to all users before a new high data rate packet is transmitted. Simulation results show that joint utilization of the proposed two methods is effective to keep signal quality good for all users.
