Basics of Cellular Communication
in a wide coverage. But as quoted from Federal Communications Commission’s statement in the previous page that the spectrum is scarce. This limits coverage on the expense of number of users or vice versa.
Initial deployment of wireless networks has dated back to 1924 with one base station providing a city-wide coverage. Although achieving very good coverage, the network can only host a few users simultaneously. Another base station using the same spectrum and serving the same area cannot be placed since that would result in interference.
