If a total of 33MHz of bandwidth is allocated to a particular FDD cellular telephone system
which uses two 25kHz simplex channels to proide full duplex oice and control channels!
computer the number of channels aailable per cell if a system uses" #a$ %&cell reuses! #b$ '&
cell reuses! #c$ (2 cell reuse) If ( MHz of the allocated spectrum is dedicated to control
channels! determine an equitable distribution of control channels and oice channels in each
cell for each of the three systems)
If a si*nal to interference ratio of (5 d+ is re,uired for satisfactory forward channel
performance of a cellular system! what is the fre,uency reuse factor and cluster size that
should be used for maximum capacity if the path loss exponent is n - %. /ssume that there
are 0 co&channels cells in the first tier and all of them are at the same distance from the
