Cluster-Based Call Acceptance Principle for Optimum Reduction of Call Failures in a GSM Network System

Aloaye Eshilama Donaldson, Constance Kalu, Ikenna Calistus Dialoke


Generally, most network providers especially in the developing countries are witnessing rapid influx of new users in their networks which affect the level of their quality of service (QoS). This research work is borne out of the fact that the wireless communication operators make use of few network resources such as base station controllers (BSCs) and base transceiver station (BTSs). This scheme is aimed at better utilization of different BTSs and their channels at any time. This research considers the signal quality, available channels, new call duration, handoff call duration and handoff call rate within the Base transceiver station (BTS). Rather than block or drop a call whenever the channels of any BTS are filled, this scheme ensures that the current BTS will handoff about ten percent (10%) of its accommodated calls to other free nearby BTSs with respect to the position of the mobile station (MS).
