This paper presents a performance model for a personal communications services (PCS) system which generalizes results obtained by the authors, allowing for a more realistic computation of basic PCS network parameters. In particular, this model generalizes the call holding time and the cell residence time distributions. On the basis of this model, we derive the handoff rates and the channel occupation times, and show how these can be applied to compute the call blocking probabilities in these networks. A simplified numerical example is presented to demonstrate the application of the presented approach.
