Abstract

In a cellular network, a given geographic area is served by several base stations, as shown in Figure 1.1. Each base station (or, simply, base) communicates wirelessly using radio-frequency spectrum with one or more mobile terminals (or users) assigned to it. Conceptually, it is useful to think of the geographic area as being partitioned into cells, with each cell representing the area served by one of the bases. Two-way wireless communication occurs between the users and bases.
