This paper focuses on the deployment of UMTS in a real airport scenario, which is expected to be one of the most UMTS relevant business environments, by means of reusing the existing GSM network infrastructure. In this framework, the paper considers that outdoor macrocells and in-building microcells provide coverage to the area of interest through co-siting 3G sites in existing 2G sites. Different deployment solutions are analysed in terms of number of microcells and maximum power per microcell. The study identifies the suitable configurations and parameters depending on the considered service mix and taking into account both technical and economical issues.
