This paper introduces admission control policies for the IEEE 802.16 standard which aim to reach three main goals: restrict the number of simultaneous connections in the system so that the resources available to the scheduler are sufficient to guarantee the QoS requirements of each connection, support the service provider expectations by maximizing the revenue, and maximize the users satisfaction by granting them additional resources. The proposed policies are evaluated through simulation experiments. Admission control mechanisms regulate the traffic load in the network so that the scheduler can furnish the bandwidth required by each connection.
