We propose a novel approach to derive an upper bound for the air interface blocking probability in a multiservice CDMA network with soft handoff (SHO) as a function of network load. This method requires only general assumptions made for network design and dimensioning. We obtain an approximated upper bound and compare it with the calculated values for the upper bound and with real network simulation results to show that our method with a reduced computational complexity is also accurate.
