    Default Required Count of TRXs

    Dears,

    Sorry I'm confusing
    Could you advice me
    how to do study to calculate rerquired Number of TRX per cell
    taking in account
    TCH Traffic
    SD Traffic
    GPRS+Edge Data [this is most confusing part for me]

    Hi Dears,

    Any idea how to calculate required TRX count taking GPRS/ Edge data in consideration

    Hi,

    I think you first should to estimate the traffic inyour cell for the 3 types of traffic: SD traffic, TCH (voice) traffic and data traffic (PDCH).

    Once you have those figures, you should use the erlang formula to calculate the channels needed to deal with each type of traffic (bear in mind the block rate you can accept for each type of traffic): the number of SD channels needed, the number of TCH (full or half rate) channels needed and the number of PDCH channels number. Of course, don't forget to take into account the dynamic allocation features that will allow you to dynamically allocate different type of channels depending on the needs in each moment.

    For signalling purposes take into account that a single time slot can handle up to 8 SD channels if you are using SDCCH8 channels.
    Voice traffic channels can dynamically change between full and half rate depending on the thresholds configured.
    And the data channels (PDCH) can also be converted from TCHs dynamically.

    In case of any doubt follow the standard configuration

    And only one PDCH per TRX.

    And of course, don't forget to activate the dynamic conversion feature.

    TCH & SD Traffic are in Erlang so simply I could use Erlang-B table for them without any problem
    but PDCH Traffic Data in Bits, how Erlang-B table can be used for Data case

    Hi, you are right. It is not possible to use the erlang-B table with data.

    But, in my experience, we calculate the voice and SD traffics and then we define the number of TRXs adding some extra capacity.

    And then we use the time slot #5 to allocate a PDCH. And to make possible to handle the extra needs for data traffic we use the dynamic conversion feature, so when needed, TCH channels are converted into PDCH channels.
