Abstract

See full text

In a multi-reuse level cellular communications system, a channel is assigned for use by a mobile unit by first determining whether the mobile unit is a non-enhanced mobile unit or an enhanced mobile unit. Then a determination is made as to the type of communication service being requested. A minimum link quality required by the mobile unit can then be established based on factors that include the mobile unit type and the type of communication service being requested. A base station that has the necessary receiver detection capabilities and transceiver processing capabilities is then selected, and a channel, corresponding to a highest reuse plan, available to the base station is assigned to the call.
