The resource allocation problem of optimal assignment of the clients to the available access points in 60 GHz millimeterWave Wireless Access Networks is investigated. The problem is posed as a multi-assignment optimization problem. The proposed solution method converts the initial problem to a minimum cost flow problem and allows to design an efficient algorithm by a combination of auction algorithms. The solution algorithm exploits the network optimization structure of the problem, and thus is much more powerful than computationally intensive general-purpose solvers. Theoretical and numerical results evince numerous properties, such as optimality, convergence, and scalability in comparison to existing approaches.
