Mobile services have seen a major upswing driven by the bandwidth hungry applications thus leading to higher data rate requirements on the wireless networks. Spectrum being the most precious resource in the wireless industry is of keen interest. Various spectrum assignment and frequency reuse schemes have been proposed in literature. However in future networks, dynamic schemes that adapt to spatio-temporal variation in the environment are desired. We thus present a hybrid spectrum assignment scheme which adapts its allocation strategies depending on user distribution in the system. Results show that the proposed dynamic spectrum assignment strategy improves spectrum utilization thereby providing a higher data rate for the users.
