[This chapter provides a brief overview of cellular base station design in a given propagation environment. Beginning with the choice of multiple access technique, we will sip through FCC allocated spectrum, frequency planning, and traffic engineering followed by cell site engineering. Finally,...
[This chapter presents a brief overview of empirical propagation models and their practical applications along with deployment guidelines. It is shown that all propagation models exhibit equation of straight line within the Fresnel zone break point. A computer-aided design tool is presented as a...
[Multiple access techniques enable many users to share the same spectrum in the frequency domain, time domain, code domain, or phase domain. These techniques are readily available as international standards and can be used to provide cellular services in a given geographical area. This chapter...
[In frequency planning, we dole out the channels to the cells, much like a dealer in card game deals out cards from the deck until every player has a set. Beginning with the FCC-allocated frequency band, we show how channels are created and allocated to different cells. Cell reuse plans are...
[Traffic engineering Traffic engineeringis a branch of science that deals with provisioning of communication circuits in a given service area, for a given number of subscribers, with a given Grade of Service (GOS)Grade Of Service (GOS). It involves acquisition of population density per cell,...
[Cell site optimization involves live air data collection as a function of distance and statistical analysis of the data for adjusting RF coverage footprints. This concluding chapter shows how these tools are used to collect live air data and perform statistical analysis to optimize the cell site.]
