Frequency Planning

  • Saleh Faruque
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering book series (BRIEFSELECTRIC)


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 described next with C/I. The improvement of channel capacity by means of optimization is also described.
