UFAM and VTT have written a paper which will be presented at the 34th Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC) in Bahia, Brazil. The paper is in Portuguese and is entitled Atribuição dinâmica de canais em redes sem fio não coordenadas IEEE 802.11, baseada em fatores de sobreposição e intensidade de sinal.

IEEE 802.11 wireless networks have become one of the main responsible for the growing of mobile devices and their applications usage. This growth of devices, that use ISM band to traffic, created a competition for portions of available frequencies to use, resulting at the decreasing of traffic quality and increasing the amount of noise generated. This article describes an uncoordinated solution for IEEE 802.11 networks channels assignments, based on adjacent channels overlap calculations combined with their signal strength. The tests showed that the solution had low convergence and flow gains at the allocation of the channels in scenarios that used spectrum at 2.4 GHz densely occupied.

The Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC) is an annual event promoted by Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and the National Laboratory of Computer Networks (LARC). For more than three decades, SBRC has become the most important national scientific event on computer networks and distributed systems, and one of the most crowded in the computer science field.

The 34th edition of this Symposium will be held from May, 30th until June 3rd in Salvador, Bahia. The event coordination is under the conjunct responsibility of the Department of Computer Science of Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) and the Federal Institute of Bahia (IFBA). The event will be composed of technical sessions, short courses, panel discussions, workshops, demo session, tutorials, and lectures presented by internationally renowned researchers.
