Chapter: Wireless Propagation Channels
Note 1.: In a TDMA or burst transmission system, only a fraction of the channel bit rate is available for a single user. It is essential that you use the channel bit rate in the above spreadsheet, as this determines the ratio between the packet duration and the non-fade durations of the channel.
Note 2.: Some systems, such as GSM, employ interleaving among blocks of data. This makes the model used here less realistic.
