This paper provides the traffic performance comparison of CDMA and FDMA in a cellular network. With the ever increasing demand for fast internet access, multimedia services and other data based services, the need for larger network and bandwidth capability cannot be over-emphasized. These services involves either CDMA or FDMA, hence the need for this comparison. We derived Erlang capacity "formulas" for the CDMA and FDMA cellular system and a MATLAB simulation was carried out using the

The results showed that the total number of Erlang of traffic that a CDMA sector can service is about 32 times that of an FDMA sector and that the total number of Erlang of traffic that a CDMA sector can service in a cellular network is about 3½ times that of an FDMA sector. The result of the analysis showed that variation in network parameters affects CDMA capacity and that CDMA has a huge capacity advantage over FDMA.
