Third generation (3G) mobile networks are due to become reality in the next few years as governments world-wide start to auction or `release' new spectrum to new and existing cellular operators. A major differentiation of 3G over second generation networks is the provision of multiple-data-rate services, higher spectrum efficiency and greater flexibility of the air interface. This paper addresses FDD W-CDMA planning and capacity estimation issues. As well as addressing the planning steps, link budgets and simplistic uplink capacity estimation the paper goes into more detail on simulation methods and considerations. Finally an example W-CDMA network, based on realistic site locations in central London, is provided. Capacity estimations are given with some indications of network stability and operating points
