First, we have presented the autocorrelation and crosscorrelation properties for periodic and aperiodic binary sequences. The generation of binary sequences using shift registers with feedback was reviewed. We have also included correlation properties for the Gold codes.

Next, we discussed Gold code generation for the balanced and unbalanced Gold codes.

Thirdly, we investigated the number of simultaneous users in a CDMA system using Gold codes for the worst case and the average case of mutual interference.

Finally, we simulated the probability of interference exceeding a threshold value, and the average crosscorrelation value caused by interference in a CDMA network which is using a Gold code. We compared probability and average crosscorrelation values simulated with theoretical bounds calculated. Here the simulation programs are done in C computer language.
