Future cellular mobile communication networks will exploit microcellular architectures and dynamic channel allocation in order to meet the rapidly increasing traffic demand. In this paper, an analytical model has been developed in order to evaluate the performance of maximum packing, a dynamic channel allocation scheme for cellular communication networks. Specifically, a finite number of users has been assumed, moving in a geographical region, covered by a finite set of cells. The considered users are characterized by a variable degree of mobility, which allows both variable sized cells and different user speeds to be analyzed. The model, based on queueing networks, allows the evaluation of the main system performance parameters in terms of blocking probability of new calls, handoff blocking probability, forced termination probability, unsuccessful probability, and throughput. Performance predictions are confirmed by simulation in a wide range of load conditions and user mobility.
