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.
