Abstract— An efficient cluster based approach on call scheduling in mobile networks is proposed in this paper. The dynamic threshold value (τ) is formulated with justification. The clusters are formed on the basis of defined threshold value. The cluster head has been selected with respect to different weight metrics for improving call scheduling. The leader (cluster head) election procedure is also described for link breakage and link emergence respectively. After the formation of clusters, the subsequent call scheduling algorithm has also been outlined in detail in this work.

Index Terms—Mobile computing, clustering, call scheduling, Routing, Dynamic thresholding.
