Abstract

A consequence of the increasingly large numbers of subscribers using cellular systems is that cell sizes (the area served by one radio base station) are becoming smaller in order to provide the necessary system capac- ity. Cell sizes below lkm radius are now quite common. The need to perform 'hand-ofP from one cell to another is clearly increased due to the fact that a cell boundary is more likely to be crossed during a call but, in addition, the time in which the hand-off can be effected is reduced.
