In the present paper the analysis of wireless communications systems in a shopping mall is presented. By means of the discrete events simulation technique, a model of the system is proposed; it is implemented and the design parameters are obtained. The results allow to determine the blocking probability and the dropping probability, in function of traffic offered by cell, the mobility of subscribers, the model of radio frequency channel and other typical parameters.
