Bandwidth Allocation

Bandwidth Allocation

This example introduces a bandwidth allocation problem that is often encountered by the ever growing mobile communication systems. The problem arises when there is an increasing need to allocate and re-allocate bandwidth for point-to-point communications.

A bandwidth allocation is the assignment of a bandwidth interval to at most one link in the communication system. An optimal bandwidth allocation minimizes the total interference that is experienced by the bandwidth.

A detailed description about the model can be found in Chapter 15 of the AIMMS Optimization Modeling book.
