As wireless technology advances, demand for spectrum bandwidth increases and thus, spectrum has become scarce. As a scarce resource, spectrum bandwidths need to be efficiently allocated to potential service providers. Hence, this paper presents an efficient integrated approach in allocating spectrum volumes, whereby the approaches of Analytic Hierarchy Process and Integer Programming are combined and applied to produce systematic and consistent results. The integrated approach is able to cater multi-criteria problems through determination of suitable weights and computations, which exhibits a more efficient alternative as compared to the existing approaches.
