In cellular wireless communication systems, transmitted power is regulated to provide each user an acceptable connection while limiting the interference seen by other users. Previous work has focused on maximizing the minimum carrier to interference ratio (CIR) or attaining a common CIR over all radio links. However, previous work has assumed the assignment of mobiles to base stations is known and fixed. In this work, we integrate power control and base station assignment. In the context of a CDMA system, we consider the minimization of the total transmitted uplink power subject to maintaining an individual target CIR for each mobile. This minimization occurs over the set of power vectors and base station assignments. We show that this problem has special structure and identify synchronous and asynchronous distributed algorithms that find the optimal power vector and base station assignment
