Abstract: It is more important to deploy Multihop Cellular Networks (MCNs) with increased cell capacity and widening the network coverage at reduced cost. It results of avoiding several problems faced by present cellular networks. However, these networks suffers with lot of problems among which mobility problem is very serious issue needs to be considered to offer better quality of service and increased cell throughput to the users. A enhanced mobility aware Channel assignment Algorithm EMACA is proposed in TDD (time division duplex) WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) MCNs and it is compared with Mobility Aware Channel Assignment algorithm (MACA). The simulated outcome proves that the proposed scheme EMACA is a better option with considerably offers good quality of service and higher throughput than MACA in MCNs.
