Communication network dimensioning involves system sizing, which corresponds to foreseen traffic loading. It is basically a systematized approach in which engineers can efficiently catalogue networks with respect to critical identified factors such as network cost and is corresponding hardware and software. These are essential in concluding major project decision, so that the network-loading designs corresponds to the market objectives. The objective of this study is to determine generic protocols, similar to the system under test, so that both market objectives and network dimensioning coincide. Customized traffic rules were recommended and applied in actual network analysis. Several network topologies were also discussed generically to maintain a common approach to communication system designs. A specified and complete application of the study was applied in Mobilcom's Nokia Actionet Trunk Mobile Radio Network. The result of the network should be sized by the designed system first installed in Visayas and Mindanao region. Most of all, the study concluded that network dimensioning can be controlled by defining essential system factors and customizing the design based on actual network operation.
