Patent Number: 6,490,461

Title: Power control based on combined quality estimates

Abstract: A wireless telecommunications system is described in which mobile station power control is affected by a functional combination of signal-to-interference sampling, bit error rate sampling, and frame error rate sample. The signal-to-interference sampling provides rapid power control adjustment, while the bit error rate and frame error rate factors provide less speedy but better power control adjustment. The power control function has applicability in single link and multiple link power control adjustments.
