Channel assignment schemes are responsible for deciding which available channel is assigned to an incoming call. This work proposes a cross-layer channel assignment mechanism for FCA mobile radio networks that bases its allocation decision on the instantaneous received and produced interference levels. The obtained results demonstrate the potential performance improvements that can be obtained with the proposed scheme with a low implementation cost. The conducted research also analyzes the optimum configuration of the proposed allocation scheme under different operating conditions in a heterogeneous traffic environment.
