Channel Assignment Strategies for Mobile Networks Using Fuzzy Petri Nets
In mobile cellular networks, the mobile devices need to handoff to different base stations based on certain criteria. And also fuzzy Petri nets can support an effective rule to deduce the inexact information. Based on the reasons, this paper focuses on the use of fuzzy Petri nets to model the handoff region for obtaining optimal channel assignment schemes. In this paper, a fuzzy logic based scheme for selection of base station is presented. The scheme considers two cover regions, namely, dual-BSs fuzzy assignment handoff and triple-BSs fuzzy assignment handoff of each base station to arrive at a fuzzy handoff decision regarding handoff to any particular base station. For comparison, the conventional power level based handoff scheme is also considered.
