ABSTRACT

The coexistence of different Radio Access Technologies (RATs) requires a need for Common Radio Resource Management (CRRM) to support the provision of Quality of Service (QoS) and the efficient utilization of radio resources. The provision of QoS is an important and challenging issue in the design of integrated services packet networks. Call admission control (CAC) is an integral part of the problem. Clearly, without CAC, providing QoS guarantees will be impossible. There is unfairness in allocation of radio resources among heterogeneous mobile terminals in heterogeneous wireless networks. In this paper, an Adaptive-Terminal Modality-Based Joint Call Admission Control (ATJCAC) algorithm is proposed to enhance connection-level QoS and reduce call blocking/dropping probability. The proposed ATJCAC algorithm makes call admission decisions based on mobile terminal modality (capability), network load, adaptive the bandwidth of ongoing call and radio access technology (RAT) terminal support index. Simulation results show that the proposed ATJCAC scheme reduces call blocking/dropping probability.
