4 Impact of Cell Shape and Radius on Service Characteristics
Triangular cell (side=R) 2pR p R2 Circular cell (radius=R) 6R Hexagonal cell (side=R) 4R R2 Square cell (side =R) Channels/Unit Area when Size of Cell Reduced by a Factor M Channels/Unit Area when Number of Channels is Increased by a Factor K Channels/ Unit Area with N Channels/ Cell Boundary Length/ Unit Area Boundary Area Shape of the Cell

5 Signal strength (in dB)
Select cell j on right of boundary Cell j -60 -70 -80 -90 -100 Cell i -60 -70 -80 -90 -100 Select cell i on left of boundary Ideal boundary

6 Actual Signal Strength
Signal strength (in dB) Cell j Cell i -60 -70 -60 -80 -70 -90 -80 -90 -100 -100 Signal strength contours indicating actual cell tiling. This happens because of terrain, presence of obstacles and signal attenuation in the atmosphere.

10 Cell Capacity Average number of MSs requesting service (Average arrival rate):  Average length of time MS requires service (Average holding time): T Offered load: a = T where a is in Erlangs e.g., in a cell with 100 MSs, on an average 30 requests are generated during an hour, with average holding time T=360 seconds Then, arrival rate =30/3600 requests/sec A completely occupied channel (1 call-hour per hour) is defined as a load of one Erlang, i.e.,

11 Cell Capacity Average arrival rate  during a short interval t is given by  t Average service (departure) rate is  The system can be analyzed by a M/M/S/S queuing model, where S is the number of channels The steady state probability P(i) for this system in the form (for i =0, 1, ……, S) -1 Where and

12 Capacity of a Cell The probability P(S) of an arriving call being blocked is the probability that all S channels are busy which is also defines the Grade of Service (GOS) This is Erlang B formula B(S, a) In the previous example, if S = 2 and a = 3, the blocking probability B(2, 3) is So, the number of calls blocked 30x0.529 = 15.87

13 Capacity of a cell The probability of a call being delayed:
This is Erlang C Formula Blocked Calls Delayed  infinite sized buffer or queue, no calls dropped For S=5, a=3, B(5,3)=0.11 Gives C(5,3)=0.2360

14 Erlang B and Erlang C (used to determine GOS)
Probability of an arriving call being blocked is Erlang B formula where S is the number of channels in a group Erlang C formula where C(S, a) is the probability of an arriving call being delayed with a load and S channels Probability of an arriving call being delayed is

17 Reuse Distance Cluster R
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 R Cluster For hexagonal cells, the reuse distance is given by where R is cell radius and N is the reuse pattern (the cluster size or the number of cells per cluster). Reuse factor is Reuse distance D

18 Reuse Distance (Cont’d)
The cluster size or the number of cells per cluster is given by where i and j are non-negative integers N = 1, 3, 4, 7, 9, 12, 13, 16, 19, 21, 28, …, etc. The popular value of N being 4 and 7 j direction 60° … i j direction 60° … i i direction

21 Cochannel Interference
Cochannel interference ratio is given by where I is co-channel interference and M is the maximum number of co-channel interfering cells For M = 6, C/I is given by: å = ÷ ø ö ç è æ M k R D C I 1 -g where  is the propagation path loss slope and  = 2 ~ 5

22 Cell Splitting Large cell (low density) Small cell (high density)
Smaller cell (higher density) Depending on traffic patterns the smaller cells may be activated/deactivated in order to efficiently use cell resources.
