Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) enabled voice traffic to go wireless, with the number of mobile phones tripled the number of landline ones, and the mobile phone penetration going beyond 100% in several markets, the subscribers’ satisfaction and service quality delivery in some part of the country is far from expectation, service interruptions are perceived negatively by end-users, thus aggressively calls for the effective management to meet the expectations by adopting suitable resource management techniques. This paper summarized the log files data generated on three active GSM networks in Kano, and intensively evaluated the traffic performances of three key teletraffic parameters of GSM network, during the seven months’ duration including the festive periods, thus the work established statistically using the Minitab statistical software package the following facts: (1) the weekly peak traffic in Kano metropolis of the three GSM networks in consideration (2) festive periods traffics are different from normal weekly traffic (3) Two-sample-means comparisons were statistically evaluated. And also using regression analysis here, a traffic model over some key parameters were developed. The proposed model could be served as decision making tools.
