In this paper, a novel Call Admission Control (CAC) scheme for multicast and unicast integrated services is proposed, which optimizes service provision capacity for both services. A resource sharing model is presented in which multiple classes services are dynamically admitted into the system. Several basic CAC rules for the above resource model are proposed first and improved mechanisms are investigated to further increase system performance. Subsequently, the call level QoS and system performance of the resulting CAC scheme are evaluated. Numeric results show that the proposed scheme can achieve optimal multiclass service performance while satisfying QoS constraints.
