Recently, new type of small Base Station known as “femtocell” has emerged. Femtocells are deployed by customers with minimal or no radio frequency planning in arbitrary locations. Thus, operators must use new approaches rather than the classic network planning and optimization. Self‐organization techniques will allow femtocells to integrate themselves into the network, learn about their environment, and adjust their parameters (power, frequency) accordingly. In this paper, a new spectrum mobility management algorithm is proposed. It allows intelligent use of the spectrum by secondary user (femtocell guest user) accessing spectrum holes unoccupied by primary users (subscriber user) and handing over to new channels or femtocells when primary user appears. Our solution aims to have more adaptive and aware communication system, which can make better use of available natural resources.
