Abstract

This paper introduces a new radio resource management technique based on distributed dynamic channel assignment, and sharing load among Access Points (AP). Deploying wireless LANs (WLAN) on a large scale is mainly affected by reliability, availability and performance. These parameters will be a concern for most managers who want to deploy WLANs. In order to address these concerns, a new radio resource management technique can be used in a new generation of wireless LAN equipment. This technique would include distributed dynamic channel assignment, and load sharing among Access Points (AP), which improves the network availability and reliability compared to centralized management techniques. In addition, it will help to increase network capacities and improve performance, especially in large-scale WLANs. Analysis results using normal and binomial distribution have been included which indicate an improvement of performance resulting from network balancing when implementing distributed resources management at WLANs. © 2009, IGI Global.
