In this paper, we consider the performance of a cellular radio direct-sequence code-division multiple access system. The base-to-mobile link is modeled as a flat Rayleigh fading channel, with all signals transmitted from a given base station fading in unison. For the mobile-to-base link, we use a similar model, except that the waveforms from all users are assumed to experience independent fading. Finally, we show the effects of imperfect power control.
