Third generation mobile communication systems will allow many different services with varying demands on data rate and delay. For those systems, the fixed radio resource management (RRM) techniques used in today's low rate systems will not be appropriate to ensure efficient utilization of the radio spectrum. Dynamic RRM is necessary in order to cope with the large variations in data rate. In this paper we study the bunch concept which is a hybrid between random and dynamic RRM. Within a small

We propose an improved RRM algorithm and evaluate the performance of the bunch concept for a Manhattan scenario with mixed traffic. The performance is improved while the computational complexity is reduced compared to our previously published results for the bunch concept. We also show that the performance of a single bunch system is close to the theoretical upper bound.
