Characteristics of Channel Assignment Schemes in Mobile Communication Networks

Channel assignment, cellular networks.


Recent years, we have seen a remarkable growth of the mobile communication users. The fact that a very limited radio frequency spectrum allocated to this service means that the frequency channels have to be reused as much as possible. Many channel assignment schemes such as fixed channel assignment (FCA), dynamic channel assignment (DCA) and hybrid channel assignment (HCA) have been proposed to assign frequencies to cells with a goal to maximise the frequency reuse. In this paper, we make a review and comparative study of various channel assignment schemes.
