We propose a channel assignment scheme with access control for obtaining better system performance within the common packet channel (CPCH) access procedure of wideband code-division multiple-access (WCDMA) systems. The proposed scheme is analyzed taking multiple access interference into consideration and is compared with other schemes in 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP): the basic scheme, the channel monitoring scheme, and the channel assignment scheme without access control. The
