The efficient management and sharing of the radio spectrum among numerous users become an important issue. The frequency channels are a scarce resource in a cellular mobile system. Thus, many schemes have been proposed to assign frequencies to the cells such that the available spectrum is efficiently used. In this paper, the authors propose a channel allocation mechanism including migration concept using genetic algorithm in cellular mobile computing environments. Their simulation results indicate that the proposed algorithm could reduce a search time for an available channel.
