1." Why it is called cellular#
.*eyone is +amilia &ith the "sage o+ the tem 2cell"la3 in !esci,ing mo,ile a!io
systems. Ho" /o,a,ly 'no& that it is calle! cell"la ,eca"se the net&o' is
com/ose! o+ a n"m,e o+ cells. Mo,ile a!io systems &o' on the ,asis o+ cells +o
t&o easons.
The +ist eason is that a!io signals at the +e1"encies "se! +o cell"la ta*el only a
+e& 'ilometes 9'ms: +om the /oint at &hich they ae tansmitte!.
They ta*el moe o less e1"al !istances in all !iectionsB hence? i+ one tansmitte is
*ie&e! in isolation? the aea ao"n! it &hee a a!io signal can ,e ecei*e! is
ty/ically a//o7imately cic"la. I+ the net&o' !esigne &ants to co*e a lage aea?
then he m"st ha*e a n"m,e o+ tansmittes /ositione! so that &hen one gets to the
e!ge o+ the +ist cell thee is a secon! cell o*ela//ing slightly? /o*i!ing a!io signal.
Fence the const"ction o+ the net&o' is a seies o+ a//o7imately cic"la cells.
The secon! eason has to !o &ith the a*aila,ility o+ something calle! a!io s/ect"m.
Sim/ly? a!io s/ect"m is &hat a!io signals "se to ta*el tho"gh s/ace.
=sing a mo,ile a!io system? it cons"mes a cetain amo"nt o+ a!io s/ect"m +o the
!"ation o+ the call. An analogy hee is ca /a's. When yo" /a' yo" ca in a ca
/a' it ta'es "/ a /a'ing s/ace. When yo" lea*e the ca /a'? the s/ace ,ecomes
The Way to CDMA Technology
+ee +o someone else to "se. The n"m,e o+ s/aces in the ca /a' is stictly limite!
an! &hen thee ae as many cas as thee ae s/aces no,o!y else can "se the ca
/a' "ntil someone lea*es.
$a!io s/ect"m in any /atic"la cell is athe li'e this. Fo&e*e? thee is an im/otant
!i++eence. 5nce yo" mo*e +a eno"gh a&ay +om the +ist cell? the a!io signal &ill
ha*e ,ecome m"ch &ea'e an! so the same ,it o+ a!io s/ect"m can ,e e"se! in
anothe cell &itho"t the t&o inte+eing &ith each othe. -y this means? the same ,it
o+ a!io s/ect"m can ,e e"se! se*eal times ao"n! the co"nty. So s/litting the
net&o' into a n"m,e o+ small cells inceases the n"m,e o+ "ses &ho can ma'e
tele/hone calls ao"n! the co"nty.

So? in s"mmay? cell"la a!io systems ae o+ten calle! 2cell"la3 ,eca"se the net&o'
is com/ose! o+ a n"m,e o+ cells? each &ith a!i"s o+ a +e& 'ilometes? s/ea!
