Abstract

This article presents a description and performance evaluation of an efficient distributed dynamic channels allocation (DDCA) scheme, which can be used for channel allocation in cellular communication networks (CCNs), such as the global system for mobile communication (GSM). The scheme utilizes a well-known distributed artificial intelligence (DAI) algorithm, namely, the asynchronous weak-commitment (AWC) algorithm, in which a complete solution is established by extensive communication among a group of neighbouring collaborative cells forming a pattern, where each cell in the pattern uses a unique set of channels. To minimize communication overhead among cells, a token-based mechanism was introduced. The scheme achieved excellent average allocation efficiencies of over 85% for a number of simulations.
