A neural network based control system (NNCS) is adopted in this paper to conduct the channel allocation task in the personal communication networks (PCN). Binary adaptive resonance theory (ART-1) that was modified for pattern matching and provided the corresponding responses is selected as the basic algorithm for the system. Digital portable radio technology can provide reliable access to high quality wireless service for many users. Low power transmission requirement and small cell size configuration that can support more users and diverse services than cellular radio system are the attractive attributes of PCN. Assigning multiple time slots to a user in a frequency reuse time-division multiplexed digital radio system is proposed in this paper. In order to reduce the probability that a new request is blocked or a hand-off is terminated due to the shortage of channels, the dynamically channel assignment is also considered in this thesis.
