This paper presents indicator matrices for assessing the quality of UMTS networks, the interference and the macrodiversity matrices. A design methodology based on these indicators is developed to guide the network designer in complex design tasks. The indicator matrices are of particular interest for both assessing of network performance and for design purposes since they allow one to identify the interaction between any couple of stations in the network. Hence, the identification of problematic sectors as well as possible curative solutions is made much simpler. An example of network design illustrates the effectiveness of the indicator matrix approach.
