Chapter 4Dynamic channel allocation and power control

In Chapter 3 we discussed channel allocation in a cellular environment with reuse constraints built in to keep interference to a tolerable level. The reuse constraints reduce the number of channels that can be allocated to each cell, reducing thereby the improvement in system traffic capacity expected through the use of the cell concept. Various strategies have been proposed and/or adopted to obtain further improvement in system performance. The use of directional antennas to reduce the number of interfering signals with which a desired signal has to contend is one possibility (Stüber, 2001). This procedure has, in fact, been adopted in current cellular systems. Another approach is that of ...
