Abstract—Capacity improvement is the essential advantages in 4th generation mobile systems which called Long-Term Evolution (LTE). The maximum data transmission rate of LTE cell is 100 Mb/s in downlink direction and 50Mb/s in uplink, and this rate can be enhanced with deploying different techniques like MIMO, carrier aggregation, and many others. Because of that 4G-LTE mobile network is considered pure packet switching, there are many parameters which affect the maximum cell capacity. This study will evaluate the result of changing many parameters on the maximum mobile cell capacity. The aim is to extract the best values of the different parameters to maximize LTE mobile cell capacity.

Index Terms—MAPL, LTE, eNB, OFDMA, EPC, and MIMO
