In order to further improve the packet performance in the UMTS FDD system, uplink DPCCH gating as a scheme is proposed in 3GPP under the work item “Continuous connectivity for packet data users”. In this paper, the uplink DPCCH gating concept is described and analyzed on both a qualitative and a quantitative level. And the system performance of different gating patterns used in the scheme was investigated by semianalytical prediction and system level simulations with different channel profiles. As will be shown, the selection of the gating pattern has a significant influence on the system performance, which is correlated with the uplink data transmission activity and the uplink power control. This contributes to a better understanding of the effects involved with uplink DPCCH gating where the biggest potential for performance optimizations can be found. In summary, the scheme of the uplink DPCCH gating is promising to improve the packet performance.
