Now you have read the previous article. Previously for Uplink throughput computation we assumed that only affect of PUCCH is included, while Physical Random Access Channel (PRACH) and Sounding Reference Signal (SRS) overheads are not included.
This time we are considering, how much throughput in the Uplink can be achieved if we take into account PRACH overhead as well, while still ignoring Sounding Reference Signal and other protocol stack overheads etc.
Remember the overhead generated by the PRACH depends upon Random Access Preamble Configuration.
The throughput in that case is shown below which assumes a single 2msec PRACH transmission per radio frame.
The maximum throughput shown in case of extended cyclic prefix is 69.7 Mbps.
The throughput calculated above is only taking PRACH overhead into account.
In reality, the actual throughput is affected by a number of factors such as:
