The increasing competition may also motivate the operators to
compromise the voice service quality and as a result there may
be increase in call drop rate. To find the exact traffic, we must
consider the nature of SMS service used by the mobile users.

[B]. Verification of Poisson Model
      In this section we examine the relevance and verification
of Poisson Model. As discussed above, the Incoming call
arrival rate follows the traditional Poisson distribution where
the call arrivals in one second have to be perfectly uncorrelated
with the Call arrival in other seconds [17].For this analysis, the
arrival rates of incoming calls have to be determined from the
collected data sets and tried to correlate with Poisson
distribution model. The arrival rate of calls is λ (t) and it has
pseudo periodic trend for both the urban and rural area and are
found approximately same at two different days. The
probability distributions for actual call arrivals plotted against
Ideal Poisson arrival in one peak hour has been shown in fig 3
and corresponding percentage variation between the ideal and
actual pattern are shown in table2.

   In Fig 4 the pattern obtained can be easily analyzed and
compare with standard (exponential) model to give actual idea
about the variation of real time traffic characteristics. Here the
value of R (.98) shows the error or variation of real pattern
with respect to Standard model.

[D]. Holding time distribution.

    The most important parameter in any cellular traffic
analysis is holding or service time distribution .Generally; in
Common it is characterize by negative exponential distribution.           Fig 4.Actual Holding time Distribution.
Mathematically, it’s shows that there is larger number of calls
