I’m new in this business, and I’m not sure that I’ve understood this correctly. I know that Erlang = minutes of traffic in the hour / 60.
But if I have 30 Erlang for one cell for a period of one week, can I just multiply by 60 to get a result of how many minutes was spoken in that week ?
That is correct:
# of Calls * Mean Holding Time (sec) = Total Time (sec)
Total Time (sec) / 3600 = # (Erlang)
If you Have 30 Erlang Then:
30 (Erl)*3600 = Total Time (sec) = 108000 (sec)
108000 (sec)/60 = 1800 (min)
