However, an evolutionary approach is more desirable because there are enormous infrastructure investments in legacy systems, and the maintenance of a large existing subscriber base requires a third generation system that is reverse compatible with the existing second generation systems. Rapid and unpredictable growth leads to difficulty in system planning. High spectral efficiency is essential to support large subscriber bases. Developing countries in particular are experiencing explosive growth due to the lack of a wired infrastructure.

In this case the received envelope is said to exhibit Ricean fading. If the envelope or squared-envelope is measured and averaged over a spatial distance of 20 to 30 wavelengths, the mean envelope or mean squared-envelope can be obtained. Sometimes, this quantity is called the local mean because it corresponds to the mean value a particular locality. Usually, the local mean will also experience slow variations over distances of several tens of wavelengths due to the presence of large terrain features such as buildings and hills.

This is an important consideration when a cellular system is first deployed. Clearly the cellular system that requires the fewest number of cell sites to cover a given geographic area has an infrastructure cost advantage. The number of cell sites that are required to cover a given area is determined by the maximum allowable path loss and the path loss characteristic. , the area averaged outage probability. 11), it is apparent that where is the radio path length that corresponds to the maximum allowable path loss and C is some constant.
