Abstract

In this paper, we deal with a mobile communication network via an AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) approach. To apply the AHP approach, we first consider three hierarchies; goal, dissatisfaction, and traffic control schemes (spatial distribution, time distribution, and traffic reduction). We then assume practical situations where network congestions occur; a terrible earthquake, a large firework, and a popular ticket reservation. Based on these situations we propose an internet AHP questionnaire.Analyzing the AHP questionnaire results, we finally evaluate users’ dissatisfaction regarding these traffic control schemes. Namely, we show how badly traffic control schemes perform for mobile communication network from users’ point of views.
