The performance of a WCDMA radio over fibre access network in macrodiversity mode is investigated. We computed the Eb/N0 for different cases applying the macrodiversity combining method. Our simulation results demonstrate that, for a given service, the capacity increased by 13%-46% (depending on the channel model and the mobile speed) in the case of the macrodiversity link as compared to the single link.
