Transportation planning has proven invaluable in urban planning. As a portion of the cellular traffic is generated by private and public transport passengers during their travels, it is therefore reasonable to argue that transport models can be used as the underlying platform to study the telecommunication traffic generated by this group of high mobility users. This paper looks into this aspect. An introduction on the four-step transport model with feedback is first given. Gravity model based on the maximization of entropy are used to generate the trip distribution. An example is given to illustrate how cell crossing rates can be obtained using the transport model and its usefulness in cellular network planning.
