To balance the time-varying traffic load between cells, caused by user mobility and diverse applications, it is crucial for next-generation code-division multiple-access (CDMA) cellular networks to configure cell coverage and capacity dynamically. In this paper, we show that pilot power allocation is highly coupled to other facets of radio resource management. We propose a novel dynamic cell configuration scheme for multimedia CDMA cellular networks, based on reinforcement-learning, which takes into account pilot, soft handoff, and maximum link power allocations, as well as call admission control mechanisms. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme in situation-aware CDMA networks.
