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


Traffic engineering is a branch of science that deals with provisioning of communication circuits in a given service area, for a given number of subscribers, with a given Grade of Service (GOS). It involves acquisition of population density per cell, translation of population density into traffic data (Erlang) per cell, computing the number of channels per cell using the Erlang table, and estimating the total number of cells in a given geographic area.
