—In this paper, the concept of DPCCH (Dedicated Physical Control Channel) gating for HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access) is analyzed. Gating technique has recently been under consideration within WCDMA to inactivate control channels during silent periods of the users, and hence, not to misuse capacity. In order to study the concept benefit, a concrete real-time service is selected in this paper: Voice over IP (VoIP) for mobile communications. It will be shown that VoIP would be highly beneficed by DPCCH gating inclusion in 3GPP specifications. Both analytical and simulation studies were run to confirm the gain expectations.
