Wireless local area networks (WLANs) have changed the way many of us communicate, work, play and live. Due to its popularity, dense deployments are becoming a norm in many cities around the world. However, increased interference and traffic demands can severely limit the aggregate throughput achievable if an effective channel assignment scheme is not used. In this paper, we propose an enhanced asynchronous distributed and dynamic channel assignment scheme that is simple to implement, does not require any knowledge of the throughput function, allows asynchronous channel switching by each access point (AP) and is superior in performance. Simulation results show that our proposed scheme converges much faster than previously reported synchronous schemes, with a reduction in convergence time and channel switches by tip to 73.8% and 30.0% respectively.
