Total Marks: 20
Due Date: 3rd December 2020
Please read the following instructions carefully before submitting assignment:
You need to use MS word document to prepare and submit the assignment on VU-LMS.
It should be clear that your assignment will not get any credit if:
§ The assignment is submitted after due date.
§ The assignment is not in the required format (doc or docx)
§ The submitted assignment does not open or file is corrupt.
§ Assignment is copied (partial or full) from any source (websites, forums, students, etc)
The objective of the assignment is to enhance the learning capabilities of the students regarding the following topics:
· Frequency Planning
· Cell Pattern
· Channels Distribution
· Network Cells
Question 1: [Marks 15]
Suppose a XYZ cellular network company has allocated 720 duplex channels in a particular region for the perfect network services. The company wants to replicate the clusters 2 times that utilizes the frequency reuse factor of 12. The minimum distance that is kept between two co-channel cells is 18 miles.
You are required to answer the following questions by considering the above scenario:
a) Calculate the total number of channels per cell.
b) Also calculate the maximum number of channels for that given region.
c) Compute the radius of each cell by keeping in view the distance given in the scenario.
Question 2: [Marks 5]
Suppose that the frequency reuse factor is missing from the network scenario given in Question 1. You are required to calculate the frequency reuse factor if only two values i.e. i = 2 and j = 1 are given.
Best of Luck!
