Overcome fading through macro diversity.
Reduced Node B power which in turn decreases interference and increases capacity.
Reduced UE power (up 4dB), decreasing interference and increasing battery life.

UE using several radio links requires more channelization codes, and more resources on the Iub and Iur interfaces.
