The demands for mobile communication services are growing rapidly. In heavily populated areas, cell splits are unavoidable to increase the capacity of the cellular system. Cell splitting makes a cellular system have mixed cell sizes. For cell planning, it is necessary to analyze the reverse link capacity of a code-division multiple-access (CDMA) cellular system with mixed cell sizes. In this paper, we propose a method to calculate the reverse link capacity of a CDMA cellular system with mixed cell sizes. When a macro cell is split into three micro cells, as an example, we calculate the reverse link capacities for the three micro cells and the neighboring macro cells. The results show that as the radius of a micro cell decreases, the reverse link capacity of the micro cell increases, while those of the neighboring macro cells decrease
