This paper presents a formula for the computation of handoff rate in PCS networks under generally distributed call holding times and generally distributed cell residence times. This formula can be used to study the handoff traffic rate. It shows that applying the exponential distribution underestimate the handoff traffic rate, hence the computed handoff call blocking probability will be lower than the actual handoff call blocking probability. This suggests the necessity of the sensitivity study with respect to the variance of channel occupancy time in the PCS network analysis and design.
