Assignment

Question – 1 10 Marks

Consider a certain Cellular network system in which we had used frequency-based division duplexing mechanism. The total assigned bandwidth of the system is 100 MHz, whereas the network uses 30 KHz channel for full duplex communication. In view of this, you are required to calculate the following:

- The complete channel bandwidth.
- The maximum no. of channels available.
- The no. of required channel per cell in a cluster having i= 3 & j = 2.

Note: All calculation steps and formulas carry marks. So, you need to write every step involved with justifications wherever required.

Question – 2 10 Marks

Suppose we had an area covered using 10 Cells. Assume that during a busy hour, the number of calls per hour (Qi) for each 10 cells is given as :

2000, 1500, 1300, 1000, 1900, 400, 670, 1300, 1900 and 2100.

Let us assume that 60 percent of the car phones will be used during this period (ηc = 0.6) and that one call is made per car phone.

You are required to calculate the total no of calls made in stated hour. Also calculate the total number of customers in the system.

Note: All calculation steps and formulas carry marks. So, you need to write every step involved with justifications wherever required.

]]>The complete channel bandwidth.

Bandwidth is a fixed quantity, so it cannot be changed. Hence, the channel capacity is directly proportional to the power of the signal, as SNR = (Power of signal) / (power of noise). so for example a signal-to-noise ratio of 1000 is commonly expressed as: 10 * log10(1000) = 30 dB.

Capacity = bandwidth * log2(1 + SNR)

Output1 : C = 30000 * log2(1 + SNR) = 30000 * 11.62 = 348600 bps
