Two variations of a generic architecture of fixed cellular rural network suitable for rural applications in developing countries are presented. Performance evaluation of the two architectures in terms of call blocking probability is carried out by using a simulation model of the networks. It is shown by simulation results that a combination of wired and wireless networks with channel borrowing for intervillage call traffic results in lower call blocking probability.
