S Jamaloddin Golestani, Rajeev Rastogi, Mark Anthony Smith: Allocation of channels to wireless LANS. Harness Dickey & Pierce, October 13, 2005: US20050226191-A1

Channels are allocated to one or more cells within a wireless LAN (WLAN) without causing unacceptable interference. The allocation involves dividing an allocation time period into frames, each frame having a substantially short duration, and then allocating one or more channels to one or more WLAN c ...

Unique identifiers are assigned to sets of adjacent access points in a wireless, local area network (WLAN). Thereafter, a unique identifier may be forwarded to a mobile device which uses the identifier to associate itself with one of the adjacent access points. Associating a mobile device with an ad ...

S Jamaloddin Golestani, Rajeev Rastogi, Mark Anthony Smith: Computing optimal channel allocations using decomposition methods and related devices. Harness Dickey & Pierce, March 30, 2006: US20060067258-A1

By decomposing (i.e., dividing) an interference graph into subgraphs, it becomes feasible to compute close approximations of an optimal channel allocation scheme within a reasonable amount of time. The channel allocation scheme may be used to allocate specific channels to access points (APs) in a wi ...

S Jamaloddin Golestani, Rajeev Rastogi, Mark Anthony Smith: Methods and devices for approximating optimal channel allocations. Harness Dickey & Pierce, March 30, 2006: US20060067267-A1

Channels are allocated to access points (APs) within a wireless, local area network (WLAN) in a reasonable time period using approximation methods. One approximation method guarantees channel allocations will be no less than ⅙ of an optimal channel allocation scheme provided the interference pattern ...

Yigal Bejerano, S Jamaloddin Golestani, Seung Jae Han, Mark Anthony Shawn Smith: Methods and devices for iteratively determining mobile device-to-access point associations to achieve load balancing. Harness Dickey & Pierce, August 17, 2006: US20060182023-A1

Mobile devices may be associated with access points other than their current access point based on load-balancing objectives of a wireless, local area network during an iterative time period.
