Network planning requires a faithful analysis of each individual cell's capacity. In this paper, we examine load control equations as a resource allocation tool to analyse cell capacity for the uplink and downlink of Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA) networks. In the uplink, the noise rise is a parameter of choice. In the downlink, transmit power for different user load
serves as a means to control the network. We show how these equations can be parametised in a cell-specific way through computer simulation. This allows us to carry over prior results to realistic network settings.
