In this paper we analyze the coverage area for LTE-A cellular network by taking into account the interference of first tier and frequency reuse planning. We considered the numerical calculations and simulation results to measure the received signal strength at the users for downlink and uplink performances. It has been shown from results that there is degradation in the received signal strength at cell boundaries from-34dBm at the center to -91dBm at the boundaries with spectral efficiency from (4.3 to 0.5) bps/Hz at cell edge. We verify themathematical model by using the ATDI simulator for the LTE radio planning that deals with a real digital cartographic and contains standard formats for propagation loss.
