The cellular channel capacity of conventional cells is shown to vary dramatically as a function of the distance from the base station. An intelligent 7.3 kBaud adaptive videophone transceiver is contrived, in order to exploit the higher channel capacity of un-interfered cell areas and to satisfy the prevalent system optimisation criteria. The system employed an enhanced H.263-compatible video codec and it was capable of operating over a wide range of operating conditions. The proposed technique has the potential to support videotelephony over existing and future wireless systems using the H.263 video codec. The main system features are summarised in Table 1.
