As CDMA systems reach capacity, infrastructure providers are extending them by offering multicarrier capability. The capacity of an n-carrier CDMA system should be at least n times the capacity of a single-carrier system. We estimate the additional capacity that can be achieved by using carrier assignment disciplines. We produce the estimates from the CDMA System Static Simulator by preprocessing the simulator inputs and post-processing its outputs. The estimates are of capacities of multicarrier systems using simple carrier assignment disciplines, and of wideband CDMA systems. The latter estimates constitute an upper bound on the capacity of a multicarrier system with any carrier assignment discipline
