Network-Level QoS Assurances Through Adaptive Allocation of CDMA Resources

In a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) network, multiple Mobile Hosts (MHs) can simultaneously transmit over the wireless channel by using different codes. To assure an acceptable Quality of Service (QoS) for all MHs' flows, the network usually tunes the transmit powers of all MHs to achieve a certain level of signal strength as compared to the noise and the interference (SINR) for each MH. The traditional assumption in power control schemes is that the SINR requirement is statically determined for each MH's flow.
