Abstract. The metric EISL (Equivalent Isotropic Sensitivity Level) describing the effective sensitivity level usable at the air interface of a mobile or a basestation is used to compare mobile communication systems either based on time division or code division multiple access in terms of coverage and emission characteristics. It turns out that systems that organize the multiple access by different codes rather than different timeslots run at less emission and offer greater coverage.
