As mobile networking is moving towards the direction of providing high-speed multimedia services, the presence of connections that do not generate traffic at constant rate is becoming reality in wireless environment. For preliminary network design purposes analytical models are necessary that examine the performance or wireless networks with such connections. In this paper an analytical method is presented to calculate call-level system parameters of cellular networks with multimedia connections. The method is based on an approximate recursive calculation. The accuracy of the approximation is verified by computer simulations. The derivation of the distributions of user describing time variables and two simple admission control policies are also presented and investigated.
