Abstract

In this paper, we analyze the packet session channel holding time for packet-switched cellular networks. Channel holding time depends on mobility which is characterized by cell residence time in this paper. We apply Hyper-Erlang distribution model to investigate the packet session channel holding time in which a session will experience active and idle periods. In terms of new session, handoff session in busy mode, handoff session with new arrival packets in idle mode and handoff session without arrival packet in idle mode, we demonstrate that the effective channel holding time is exponentially distributed if and only if the cell residence time is exponentially distributed. The analytical results provide a new approach to evaluate traffic performance and system design in packet-switched cellular networks.
