Optimal Channel Allocation with Hot-Spot Technique in Wireless Network

In wireless mobile communication systems, proper channel allocation scheme is required. Due to the limitation of available frequency spectrum, channels must be reused as much as possible to increase system capacity. Complication arises in channel allocation, when more than one cell become "Hot-Spot" in the network of one BSC. The cells become "Hot-Spot" when bandwidth resources currently available in those cells are not sufficient to sustain any more call. In hybrid channel allocation, cells send a multilevel hot-spot notification to the dynamic pool of BSC on each channel request that cannot be satisfied locally at the base station. Proportional to the current hot-spot level of the cell, this hot-spot notification will request more than one channel to assign to the requesting cell.
