Abstract [en]

A simple method for estimating the costs of building and operating a cellular mobile network is proposed. Using empirical data from a third generation mobile system (WCDMA) it is shown that the cost is driven by different factors depending on the characteristics of the base stations deployed. When site density increase, operational and transmission costs tend to dominate rather than radio equipment and site costs. The results also show how, for different capacity requirements, the costs can be minimized by a proper selection of for example macro, micro and pico base stations. In many scenarios the macro base stations yield the lowest cost, indicating that coverage (cell range) is an important parameter when designing wireless systems.
