Q1.
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)
Q2.
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
mobile) 1se suitable approximations)
Q3.
How many users can be supported for 2)53 blockin* probability for the followin* number of
trunked channels in a blocked calls cleared system. #a$ 5! #b$ (2! #c$ 22! #d$ %2! #e$ (22)
/ssume each user *enerates 2)( 4rlan*s of traffic)
Q4.
#a$ 5hat is the maximum system capacity #total and per channel$ in 4rlan*s when proidin*
a 23 blockin* probability with % channels! with 22 channels! with %2 channels.
#b$ How many users can be supported with %2 channels at 23 blockin*. /ssume H-(25s!
-( call6hour)
Q5.
/ certain city has an area of (!322 s,uare miles and is coered by a cellular system usin* a '&
cell reuse pattern) 4ach cell has a radius of % miles and the city is allocated %2 MHz of
spectrum with a full duplex channel bandwidth of 02 kHz) /ssume a 789 of 23 for an
4rlan* + system is specified) If the offered traffic per user is 2)23 4rlan*s! compute"
#a$ :he number of cells in the serice area!
#b$ :he number of channels per cell!
#c$ :raffic intensity of each cell!
#d$ :he maximum carried traffic!
#e$ :he total number of users that can be sered for 23 789!
#f$ :he number of mobiles per channel! and
#*$ :he theoretical maximum number of users that could be sered at one time by
the system)
Q6.
/ hexa*onal cell within a %&cell system has a radius of ()3;' km) / total of 02 channels are
used within the entire system) If the load per user is 2)22< 4rlan*s! and - ( cal(6hour!
compute the followin* for an 4rlan* = system with a 7os of 53"
#a$ How many users per s,uare kilometer will this system support.
#b$ 5hat is the probability that a delayed call will hae to wait for more than (2 s.
#c$ 5hat is the probability that a call will be delayed for more than (2 seconds.
