Abstract

We propose a multi-agent approach for distributed channel allocation (MA-DCA) in mobile cellular networks. Our approach assumes that each cell in a cellular network works as an agent that negotiates its bandwidth (channel) requirements with its neighbors so that the probability of its call drops is minimized, and channel reuse constraint is satisfied. Using simulations, we compare our MA-DCA approach with simple fixed channel allocation and dynamic channel borrowing approaches and illustrate that the MA-DCA is a superior approach for channel allocation.
