Smart antennas offer a broad range of ways to improve wireless system performance. It provides enhanced coverage through range extension, hole filling and better building penetration. Smart antennas use an array of low gain antenna elements which are connected by a network. Fractal concepts are used in antenna arrays recently. The important properties of fractal arrays are frequency independent multi-band characteristics, schemes for realizing low side lobe designs, systematic approaches to thinning and the ability to develop rapid beam forming algorithms. In this paper, an attempt has been made to apply assignment of usage time and location tag algorithm for smart antennas combined with the fractal concepts to reduce the computational complexity and enhance resource allocation for rapid beam forming algorithms.
