Wireless resource management using genetic algorithm for mobiles equilibrium


An adaptive algorithm is proposed for controlling mobile users transmitter power and information bit rate cooperatively in CDMA networks. The active component of this scheme is called Genetic Algorithm for Mobiles Equilibrium (GAME). Based on an evolutionary computational model, the base station tries to achieve an adequate equilibrium between its users. Thereof, each mobile can send its traffic with a suitable power to support it over the different path losses and interference. In the mean time, its battery life is being preserved while limiting the interference seen by neighbors. This optimization is based on each user traffic, required signal quality, the channel characteristics and users spatial distribution. A significant enhancement in signal quality and power level has been noticed through several experiments.
