An optimization model with maximum ratio combining (MRC) diversity soft handover is proposed for WCDMA base station location planning with heuristic algorithm, which can calculate the influence of MRC diversity soft handover directly in the process of base station location planning. Experimental results show that the proposed model can get better capacity and coverage performance in the planning results than the traditional optimization model without MRC diversity.
