Traditional design rules, wherein cells are dimensioned in order to get an equal amount of demand in each cell are not directly applicable to CDMA networks where large cells can cause a lot of interference to adjacent small cells. In order to enable iterative cell placement we use a computationally efficient iterative process to calculate the inter-cell and intra-cell interferences as a function of pilot-signal power and base station location. These techniques enable us to improve the placement of cells in a CDMA network so as to enhance network capacity. We show examples of how networks using this design technique will provide higher capacity than ones designed using conventional techniques
