Frequency Planning Techniques

  • Gordon L. Stüber


This chapter considers cellular frequency planning techniques for TDMA and OFDMA/SC-FDMA based cellular systems. The chapter begins with a discussion of basic cellular frequency planning techniques, including cell sectoring, cell splitting and reuse partitioning. This is followed by a treatment of issues related to frequency planning in OFDMA/SC-FDMA cellular networks. Afterwards, a novel TDMA hierarchical cellular architecture is considered that is based on the concept of cluster planning, where macrocells and microcells can share the same frequencies. Finally, the chapter wraps up with a treatment of macrodiversity TDMA architectures, where a mobile station is simultaneously served by multiple base stations.
