The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the diversity of combinatorial problems encountered in the design of wireless switching systems. This is done via a representative selection of examples of real problems along with their associated resolution methods. It should be emphasized that all the resolution methods presented in this paper are successfully operating in the field at the time of writing.
