Performance evaluation of multimedia services in cellular networks

Abstract

In this paper, a new analytical method is presented for analyzing cellular networks with connections that change their transmission rate during the session. The method is based on a Markovian model of a single base station and an approximate recursive formula following from the Markov model. This formula is applicable for calculating call level system parameters rapidly with reasonable error. Two simple admission control strategies are also presented and investigated. The accuracy of the proposed approximate method is verified by computer simulations.
