This work focuses on the problem of efficient assignment of the orthogonal-variable-spreading-factor (OVSF) codes for multimedia communications in W-CDMA systems. Due to the problem of code blocking in OVSF-code assignment considered by Minn and Siu, and the different probability of requests for each data rate, the OVSF-code assignment algorithms proposed so far cannot efficiently serve the high-rate requests when traffic load is high. Even though Minn and Siu proposed the algorithm to completely eliminate the code blocking, a system implemented with such an algorithm has a lower number of simultaneous voice conversations than the system with the code blocking problem. To efficiently provide the services for all supported rates, we propose an OVSF-code assignment scheme called the region division assignment (RDA). The performance of the proposed RDA scheme is evaluated by simulation for voice and video sources based on the multiple access protocol in UMTS/IMT-2000
