This paper studies the impacts of adjacent channel interference (ACI) on uplink capacity in a macrocell/microcell wideband code-division multiple access (WCDMA) system. A method is presented for computing ACI and deriving capacity limitations. This method is based on an interference analysis that considers propagation loss, random distribution of mobile users, and mutual coupling effects between ACIs. In addition to mobile users in other cells, the home cell's mobile users contribute part of the ACI resulting from other cells via the mutual coupling effect.
