In this paper we consider a model of a linear network with reuse partitioning. An instance of the network is considered where a number of call requests are present at the different zones of each cell. Interference constraints prevent the use of the same channel in certain combination of zones at different cells. We obtain an algorithm that allocates a channel to each call request without violating the interference constraints and uses the minimum number of channels.
