Ant Colony Optimization for Channel Assignment Problem in Clustered Mobile Ad Hoc Network
2013 (English)In: Advances in Swarm Intelligence, Berlin Heidelberg: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2013, 314-322 p.Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
This paper presents an ant colony optimization (ACO) method as a method for channel assignment in a mobile ad hoc network (MANET), where achieving high spectral efficiency necessitates an efficient channel assignment. The suggested algorithm is intended for graph-coloring problems and it is specifically tweaked to the channel assignment problem in MANET with a clustered network topology. A multi-objective function is designed to make a tradeoff between maximizing spectral utilization and minimizing interference. We compare the convergence behavior and performance of ACO-based method with obtained results from a grouping genetic algorithm (GGA).
