Abstract: This study aims to determine the mapping rule for signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) to channel quality indicator (CQI) based on DC-HSDPA real field measurements. The measurements were performed using the TEMS Investigation Tool at 85 different propagation mediums. The measurement results showed that the SIR-to-CQI mapping methods in the literature were insufficient to characterize actual radio environments; thus, proposal of a new empirical SIR-to-CQI mapping rule was aimed. This rule provides substantially better performance than the existing methods, and with this rule CQI can be generated from SIR with an accuracy of around 90% for DC-HSDPA systems.
