Inspired by the synchronization phenomena observed in the Nature, we propose an autonomous load balancing method for a wireless network. We model the load balancing problem of cells providing wireless access services as a synchronization problem in the Nature and design an algorithm for each cell to distribute loads in a self-determining way based on the load differences among its neighbor cells. Through simulations, we verify the feasibility of the proposed method in that cell loads can be balanced efficiently eve if cells make decision autonomously using their local information.
