See full text

Various methods and devices are provided to address the need for improved network load balancing. In a first method, a suitability for providing forward link service to a mobile device is determined for each wireless resource of a plurality of wireless resources. Each suitability determination is based on a pilot strength associated with that wireless resource and a loading metric associated with that wireless resource. Also, the weighting of the pilot strength relative to the loading metric in the determination is diminished as a loading level of that wireless resource increases. A wireless resource of the plurality of wireless resources is selected to provide forward link service to the mobile device based on the suitability determinations.
