A scenario based on an UMTS TDD opportunistic cellular system that operates over UMTS FDD licensed cellular networks is considered. Therefore a simulation tool was developed for the analysis and assessment of UMTS TDD opportunistic radio system in a coexistence environment with UMTS FDD primary cellular networks. The communication presents the scenario considered, the main features of the simulation tool, discusses and proposes metrics to evaluate the communication opportunities in UMTS FDD primary cellular networks, and presents numerical simulation results. These show that a moderate number of UMTS FDD available frequencies and a reasonable UMTS TDD opportunistic radio transmission power will allow the deployment of UMTS TDD opportunistic radio networks in a coexistence environment with existing licensed systems.
