Using simulation and modelling, the other-cells interference factor for CDMA systems is obtained. Situations with tiers of neighbouring cells are investigated under various propagation parameters and for two scenarios, when the mobile chooses the nearest base station, and when it chooses the base station with the strongest signal as home cell. The results presented indicate that in most situations the other-cells interference factor can be significantly less than the upper bounds result published previously. It is concluded that it is enough to compare the link attenuation of three neighbouring cells to find the home cell.
