Efficient spectrum utilization is a constant theme in radio systems. Cellular mobile radio is one solution and by making the cell radius quite small, e.g. microcell, the channel capacity increases. However, in microcells, handovers are frequent and the optimum control algorithm is not yet known except for some indication of decentralization. On the other hand, mobile packet radio networks provide communication between mobile users via mobile repeaters. For network survivability against topology changes, distributed control is suggested. This paper focuses on these controls, reviewing the basic issues and research results.
