What is ASE (area spectral efficiency)?

Area spectral efficiency (ASE) is efficiency that is characterized as the amount of the greatest average information rates/Hz/unit area upheld by a cell’s base station. This efficiency reuse distance for the uplink of FDMA and TDMA frameworks under various interference configurations. ASE diminishes as an exponential of a fourth order polynomial relative to the cell size. This outcome quantifies exactly how much cellular system capacity increases with diminished cell size.
