A new analytical model for finding the call blocking probability of a cellular mobile system with directed retry is developed. It can give very accurate results for systems with both uniform and nonuniform traffic distributions. With that, we are able to formulate a second analytical model for obtaining the probability of additional handoffs due to directed retry. Numerical results show that the probability of additional handoff due to directed retry is more sensitive to the percentage of cell overlap than to the mean path length travelled by a mobile unit. In our example of a cellular system with a typical 30% cell overlap the probability of additional handoff is about 0.02. The use of directed retry, therefore, is expected to cause only a minimum amount of additional load in handoff processing and has only a minimal effect on the probability of handoff failure
