A Practical Frequency Planning Technique for Cellular Radio
A practical algorithm using a combination of simulated annealing and two problem specific heuristics has been developed for frequency planning in cellular radio networks. It is designed to rapidly generate complete Frequency plans. Experimental work is described that characterises the performance and behaviour of our algorithm.
