Title

Poster Session A: Wireless Local Loop and the Limited Mobility Issue in Pakistan

Abstract/Description

Wireless Local Loop (WLL) licenses have been issued to increase the tele-density in the country. Almost all WLL operators have chosen Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) based technologies to implement their networks. Government policy allows limited mobility, which, if implemented literally, can severely degrade the performance of these networks. On the other hand, if certain conditions on mobility are relaxed, it can make the WLL systems potential competitors for the cellular systems present in the country. This paper discuses technical background of the limited mobility issues and proposes few potential solutions to solve this problem.
