This paper analyzes the impact of the Iub link characteristics on the HSDPA air interface performance. In this work three different transport protocols are used to examine the effect of the Iub link on the HSDPA air interface. The paper uses both analytical and simulation techniques to analyze the relationship between the HSDPA air interface performance and the Iub link characteristics. The paper uses a Markov chain based analytical model and an OPNET based simulation model to obtain HSDPA air interface performance results.
