Summary: 
This paper presents the evaluation for personal communication systems (PCS). Two types of PCS are supposed for low and high degree of mobility. The service area with 30km radius is covered by a multiple hexagonal cells, which are micro cells and macro cells for the low mobility and high mobility planes respectively. As for a traffic distribution, uniform and exponentially tapered traffic distributions are assumed. After defining the system model, cost evaluation form along with capacity has been derived. The evaluation and discussions are made in terms of cost economy, capacity and spectrum usage in various conditions. It is shown that there exist the optimum cell radius for the prescribed subscriber numbers and the integration of two systems is desirable for the support of full mobility with cost-effectiveness and spectrum efficiency.
