In this paper, the authors deal with the Wireless LAN planning problem. They study this problem and they propose to couple its two major issues: AP placement and channel assignment to treat them jointly. Here, they propose a novel fast and scalable Three-Phase Heuristic Algorithm (TPHA). Their proposal is able to resolve the defined multi-objective problem to provide the efficient number of Access Points (APs) to be deployed, while ensuring the coverage of all Test Points (TPs) and maximizing their nominal data rate.
