Wireless cellular networks have become increasingly important in providing data access to cellular users via a grid of cells. Many applications are considered to read data from smart meters for potable water, gas, or electricity. This paper proposes a novel algorithm to assign paired channels for intelligent metering through wireless connectivity, which is particularly relevant due to the commercial advantages that a virtual operator currently provides. The algorithm considers the behavior of secondary spectrum channels assigned to smart metering in a cellular network. It explores spectrum reuse in a virtual mobile operator to optimize dynamic channel assignment. The proposed algorithm exploits the white holes in the cognitive radio spectrum and considers the coexistence of different uplink channels, resulting in improved efficiency and reliability for smart metering. The work also defines the average user transmission throughput and total smart meter cell throughput as metrics to measure performance, providing insights into the effects of the chosen values on the overall performance of the proposed algorithm.
