The paper proposes an admission control scheme based on adaptive bandwidth reservation to provide QOS guarantees for multimedia traffic carried in high-speed wireless cellular networks. The proposed scheme allocates bandwidth to a connection in the cell where the connection request originates and reserves bandwidth in all neighboring cells. It combines admission the proposed scheme adjusts the amount of reserved bandwidth based on the current network conditions. It distinguishes new calls and hand-off calls. It gives higher priority to hand-off calls to provide higher connectivity to users who are already accepted in the network.
