Frequency Reuse

Posted on 25-Feb-2003 18:14 | Filed under: Glossary



The ability to use the same frequencies repeatedly across a cellular system, made possible by the basic design approach for cellular. Since each cell is designed to use radio frequencies only within its boundaries, the same frequencies can be reused in other cells not far away without interference. The reuse of frequencies enables a cellular system to handle a huge number of calls with a limited number of channels.
