Abstract

This work proposes the use of a procedure for improving the loss of capacity assessment of heterogeneous bandwidth requests in the min slot-continuity capacity loss (MSCL) spectrum allocation algorithm. The particle swarm optimization (PSO) method is used to determine the best relationship between the number of requested slots and the amount of contiguous free slots in the requested and interfering paths. We also incorporate in the MSCL the influence of the number of hops of a route in its capacity evaluation. Considerable reductions in the path request blocking probability are achieved when the technique is applied, particularly when the number of hops is included to the evaluation.
