This paper compares two techniques in recovering the capacity degradation caused by sectorization in a cellular system. They are the Directed Retry and Load Sharing in sector cells. Since both techniques requires an overlapping area between adjacent sectors, the values of the overlapping area are chosen such that the Carrier to Interference Ratio (CIR) is satisfied.
