Next generation wireless technology will support mobility for multimedia applications. In this paper, the authors develop analytical models for predicting the blocking probabilities in multi-layer cellular network providing integrated services to a population of mobile users. The analytical models are based on continuous time multi-dimensional birth-death approach having double layer cellular architecture. There is a provision of reserved channels to give the priority to handoff calls. By using Releasing Function (RF), the reserved channels may also be allocated to new calls in case when reserved channels are free.
