1.   A cellular system is to be designed for an area. The system designer decided to have 19-cell clusters to cover the cluster
     area (radius = 7 km). Use the following additional information to answer the questions.

     Duplex Bandwidth allocated to the system = 20 MHz
     Bandwidth of each frequency channel = 200 kHz
     Number of traffic channel per frequency channel = 8
     Busy hour Grade of Service (blocking probability) = 0.1%
     Busy hour Average holding time = 1.5 minutes
     Busy hour probability of making a call by an user = 0.6 (60%)
     Propagation path loss = 40 dB/decade


     a.   Total number of traffic channels per cluster
     b.   Number of traffic channel per cell
     c.   Erlang value per cell
     d.   Arrival rate in a cell
     e.   Number of user
     f.   Cell radius
     g.   Cochannel interference (C/I) in dB (make appropriate assumptions, if required)

2.   Answer the following questions
        a. What is TRAU? Where is it located? Why does a GSM system need a TRAU?
        b. Why is a GSM system’s cell radius limited to 35 km?
        c. Why do the traffic multiframe and control multiframe have different sizes/lengths?
        d. What are the purposes of using interleaving and frequency hopping in a GSM system?
        e. A CSD data rate can be 4.8, 9.6 and 14.4 kbps. What makes this difference?
        f. A HSCSD data rate can be as high as 57.6 kbps. How does HSCSD achieve higher bit-rate than the CSD?
        g. EGPRS achieves much higher bit rate than the HSCSD. List the techniques that are used in EGPRS to enhance
             the bit rate.
