    We describe the simulation of a new dynamic channel assignment algorithm in FDMA/TDMA wireless networks. The algorithm relies on periodic interference measurements by each of the base stations on the inactive frequencies, so as to identify appropriate candidate channels. The adaptive nature provides automatic configuration at the time of system initialization and adaptation to system expansion and traffic patterns with spatial or temporal variations. By eliminating the manual frequency planning process inherent to today's fixed channel assignment procedures, the self-organizing capability guarantees ease of operation for service providers, while increasing both capacity and voice quality. Our simulation experiments demonstrate stability of the algorithm and confirm its self-organizing capability. They also indicate a significant decrease of call blocking and dropping and other quality-of-service improvements.
