In this paper, we analyze the effect of applying leaky bucket as a well known traffic shaper on data users in a variable spreading gain CDMA (VSG-CDMA) uplink wireless cellular network. To this end, we model the effect of leaky bucket mechanism on a typical data user, with a closed product form queueing network. Each node in this queueing network corresponds to a specific processing gain or equivalently transmission rate and power. By solving such a queueing network we obtain the steady state probability with which a typical data user will exist at each node. By aggregating the effects of all data users we compute the mean and variance of interference and obtain the throughput and average delay for a typical data user. In the last part of the paper, we observe the efficiency of leaky bucket in different conditions.
