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, we will see how to obtain live air data and perform data analysis for optimization. Details will be presented in the subsequent chapters.
