In this paper, we propose a simple and accurate method to derive the dwell time distribution of a mobile in a cell by a numerical integration approach. In practical applications, only a few traffic models have a known closed-form solution, most of the models can not be solved in closed form. Therefore a simulation or approximating method has to be used to solve the problems. To validate the accuracy of the proposed method, we apply it to a typical hard handoff traffic model with known closed-form solution and the goodness-of-fit is measured. We also apply this method to a soft handoff traffic model, which does not have a closed-form solution. Computer simulations show promising results based on the non-closed-form application.
