The Throughput of Packet Access Cellular Systems Based on DECT Architecture
In this paper we present a study on the effectiveness of cellular systems based on DECT architecture to support packet data services. In DECT, multiple access and frequency reuse issues are addressed by an integrated mechanism which dynamically selects a suitable channel. In order to evaluate the overall system performance, we have separately considered the two problems. First, we have addressed the multiple access problem and calculated the throughput in a single cell environment by means of an analytical model. Then, to study the frequency reuse problem, we have analyzed, by means of computer simulation, the performance in the multi-cell environment specified by ETSI. According to our analysis, we propose some possible modifications that can improve the spectral efficiency.
