Abstract


UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) network uses the band frequency 1920-1980 MHz or 2110-2170 MHz (Mega Hertz). However, Still remote areas where there are difficulties to provide UMTS services in a cost effective way, UMTS deployment in the 900 MHz band can facilitate the provision of the expected UMTS services to users in those areas. The main interest to propose the solution of UMTS in the 900 MHz band is the larger coverage compared to UMTS in the 2000 MHz band and larger penetration and in-depth coverage for indoor communication. UMTS 900 offers a considerably more cost effective solution for providing UMTS services in rural area with low population density. This paper proposed a UMTS 900/2100 co-existence overlay model for a cost effective solution of 3G (3rd Generation) UMTS deployment focusing on the Pakistan Telecom industry. Further, this paper gives some recommendations to the Pakistan Telecom Regulatory Authority and Telco operators on the basis of proposed model simulation results.
