Genetic Algorithm for Multihoming Cell Assignment Problem in Wireless ATM Network
In the design of cellular telecommunications networks, the handover and cabling cost management play an important role. In this paper, the authors propose a cell assignment problem, which assign cells in Personal Communication Service (PCS) to switches in wireless ATM network in an optimal manner. This is a complex integer programming problem and modeled as multi-homing cell assignment problem. Since finding an optimal solution of this problem is NP-hard. The proposed method, based on genetic algorithm, solve this problem. They implement this problem in MATLAB using GA and find better results.
