On the Traffic Capacity of Cellular Data Networks

Abstract : We introduce a notion of traffic capacity useful for dimensioning cellular data networks, where the dynamic nature of traffic is explicitly taken into account. Specifically, the traffic capacity is based on the stable behavior of a dynamic system where the number of active users varies at random as new data transfers are initiated and other cease. We apply this notion to both time-multiplexed and frequency-multiplexed cellular networks, and compare the results to the maximum capacity predicted by the information theory.
