Even though significant improvement to communications infrastructure has been attained in the personal communication service industry, the issues concerning the assignment of cells to switches in order to minimize the cabling and handoff costs in a reasonable time remain challenging and need to be solved. In this paper, we propose an algorithm based upon the Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) approach to solve the cell assignment problem, which is known to beNP-hard. ACO is a metaheuristic inspired… CONTINUE READING
