Three-Phase Heuristic Algorithm for Wireless LAN Planning
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.
