Abstract

We consider a wideband CDMA network with arbitrary but known layout of sectors and base-stations, and with variable mobile rates. In this paper, we investigate the issue of rate assignment in a CDMA network. We show that in a broadband wireless data system based on a wideband CDMA technology, there exists an optimal decentralized rate assignment. We show how this method is related to the traditional window or rate based flow control mechanisms widely used in TCP/IP networks.
