In recent years, there has been a sharp increase in the demand for real-time multimedia applications from mobile subscribers. Voice and video are the most common forms of network traffic used in these applications and to optimise space-quality ratios, variable bitrate coding techniques are used to encode them. Even with the advent of high speed access network technologies such as the Long Term Evolution (LTE), there is a need for efficient management of radio resources to ensure that the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements for these applications is met.
