Modern cellular mobile communication systems are characterized by a high degree of capacity. Efficient management of the wireless channels by effective channel allocation algorithms is crucial for the performance of any cellular system. To provide a better channel usage performance, allocation of channels to individual cells can be done either by a centralized method or by a distributed method. A modified Distributed Dynamic Channel Allocation (DDCA) algorithm is proposed with three-cell cluster model is to increase the spectral efficiency for an increase in channels and blocking probability reduces for increase in offered load.
