2-dimensional (2D) block spread direct sequence-code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) allows uplink mutlirate/mutli-connection transmissions without causing a serious multi-access interference (MAI) in the presence of a frequencyselective fading channel. However, in a cellular system, the intercell interference remains. The site selection diversity (SSD) can be used to reduce the inter-cell interference and increase the uplink capacity. Furthermore, transmit power control (TPC) is necessary

In this paper, we discuss the impact of SSD and TPC on the uplink capacity of 2D block spread DS-CDMA and compare it with those of conventional DS-CDMA and 1D block spread DS-CDMA.
