In this paper, we will show a simple analytical model for cellular communication networks performance evaluation. The model assumes a finite population of mobiles moving in a finite number of cells. A model of this type allows us to evaluate the effects on system performance of the following factors: Fixed Channel Allocation (FCA) scheme, user load, mobility and distribution of users among cells. Numerical simulation experiments show that predictions of this simple model are acceptable in a wide range of mobility and for light to moderate load conditions. A discussion about these assumptions will show that this model is well suited for future pico-cellular system analysis.
