An Improved Model for GSM/GPRS/EDGE Performance Evaluation
Nowadays massive access to the new cellular technologies is no longer an idea but a tangible reality. Among them, the GSM/GPRS/EDGE architecture represents without any question the most worldwide spread of them. Costs decreases in both infrastructure and personal equipment has largely increased the number of users. This abrupt growth poses a difficult challenge for telecom operators when it comes to dimensioning and evaluating the performance of their networks. Previous works have studied the problem of modeling GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks, paying little attention to many technical implementation features of determinant impact.
