Growing popularity of high speed wireless broadband access for real-time applications makes it increasingly relevant to study the admission control and scheduling of flows in a service differentiated manner. Next-generation wireless broadband networks employ Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology that enables multiple users to communicate at the same time using a time-frequency grid. This paper provides a mathematical model for prioritized admission control and scheduling in OFDMA based multihop wireless networks.
