if the load gets higher on the cell ?

3. Consider the handoff procedure in GSM system that is based on relative
signal strength with threshold; that is, a mobile switches from one cell
to another if (a) the signal at the current BS is sufficiently weak (less
than a predefined threshold) and (b) the other signal is stronger than
the two. What are the drawbacks of this scheme, when the threshold is
too low or too high ?

packets in Digital Audio Broadcasting.

reception) before sending an ACK, while waiting DIFS time units before
attempting a data transmission ?

to 1840 MHz for uplink channels and 1860 MHz to 1900 MHz for downlink
channels respectively. Each channel takes 200 KHz and can be shared
by 8 users. Each user needs one uplink and one downlink channel. How
many users can be supported without frequency reuse in this cellular
system ? [16]

communicate with a corresponding node CN in network Y. The node MN
moves from X to a foreign network A. Describe the sequence of
messages that are required in Mobile IPv4 so that MN and CN can
continue to communicate. Include both the user data messages and the
Mobile IP control messages. Now, consider the case where CN moves to
foreign network B while MN is still in the foreign network A. Can

moving? ) Show the message flow to indicate how it will succeed or
fail in this case. [16]
