This paper presents a novel network tessellation for 12-sector site deployment called "Flower" topology for use in cellular network simulations. The aim of this paper is to study the impact of higher order sectorization and perform a comparison of different network tessellations for Dual Cell HSDPA (DC-HSDPA) network. Throughput and Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) at different Intersite Distance (ISD) were used as merits of performance. It was found that at 1000m ISD, flower topology for 12-sector sites offers 7.2% and 210% relative throughput gain with respect to traditional hexagon layout for 12-sector and 3-sector sites deployment, respectively.
