The bandwidth allocated for a cellular wireless network is crucial and has to be used efficiently for better performance. To improve the utilization of channels, the channels need to be allocated to various cells in a dynamic way. The dynamic channel allocation schemes can be classifieds in to centralized schemes and distributed schemes. The centralized channel schemes are not reliable not scalable. The fault tolerance is more significant in case of cellular networks due to mobility, poor quality of links and other constraints. Additionally, most of the existing channel allocation algorithms which are fault tolerant have been designed in a way so that these can be used with hexagonal cells, therefore, for the reuse distance of one cell only. Hence, in this exposition, we proposed a quorum based algorithm to solve channel allocation system. We also proposed a new quorum system named as cellular quorum system specifically designed for channel allocation.
