Abstract : In this paper we propose the following approach to the dimensioning of the radio part of the downlink in OFDMA networks. First, we use information theory to characterize the bit-rate in the channel from a base station to its mobile. It depends on the power and bandwidth allocated to this mobile. Then, we describe the resource (power and bandwidth) allocation problem and characterise feasible configurations of bit-rates of all users. As the key element, we propose some particular sufficient condition (in a multi-Erlang form) for a given configuration of bit-rates to be feasible. Finally, we consider an Erlang's loss model, in which streaming arrivals whose admission would lead to the violation of this sufficient condition are blocked and lost. In this model, the blocking probabilities can be calculated using Kaufman-Roberts algorithm. We propose it to evaluate the minimal density of base stations assuring acceptable blocking probabilities for a streaming traffic of a given load per surface unit. We validate this approach by comparison of the blocking probabilities to these simulated in the similar model in which the admission control is based on the original feasibility property (instead of its sufficient condition). Our sufficient bit-rate feasibility condition can also be used to dimension the network with respect to the elastic traffic.
