dc.description.abstract The modern mobile communication technology has experienced generations and evolved into the Fifth generation which is ongoing with pre-commercialization. In addition to the market demand, the limitations in previous generation trigger a motivation for developing latest mobile technologies. For instance the limitations in Second Generation (2G) system like: limited and low utilization of frequency spectrum and weak support for mobile multimedia services was the motivation behind the evolution of the Third Generation (3G) mobile technology. Therefore, the 3G is a natural result in the advancement of the 2G mobile Communications. The 3G communication technology opens the door to a brand new mobile communication world. In addition to clearer voice services, it allows users to conduct multimedia communications with their mobile terminals. In order to benefit from this technology we need to have a well-designed and planned state-of-the art network. For the case of Ethiopia, EthioTelecom is doing massive expansion projects to address strong requirement of voice and data services with adequate network capacity and coverage. Thus, this thesis focuses on carrying out Universal Mobile Telecommunication System coverage and capacity planning taking Bole sub City of Addis Ababa as a case study. Dimensioning and Prediction simulation output verifies that, the intended planning and design work for the designated area can be achieved with 105 node B, which is less by 8 NodeBs compared to the existing 3G radio network system.
