Soft handover (SHO) provides better support for user mobility. The quality of service (QoS) to the mobile wireless subscribers can also grant benefits from SHO. To analyze the impact of SHO on the circuit switched (CS) video telephony (VT); real-time measurements have been conducted on a commercial WCDMA mobile network in the CBD of Sydney, Australia. Live measurement provides a practical approach to evaluate performance of commercial network. The obtained SHO gain implies that better QoS can be achieved. Furthermore, the negative impact of pilot pollution on radio link quality has been demonstrated in this paper. ©2010 IEEE.
