Abstract

This paper is focused on the design of an adaptive Connection Admission Control (CAC) algorithm for a Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) based satellite system with variable link capacity. The main feature of the proposed algorithm is to maximize the resource utilization by adapting to the link conditions and the antenna gain of the users. The link quality of the user may vary depending on the weather condition, user mobility and any other propagation factors. The algorithm is compared against a non-adaptive admission control algorithm under different test cases. The proposed CAC algorithm is simulated using MATLAB and the performance results are obtained for a mix of multimedia traffic classes such as video streaming, web browsing, netted voice and email. The simulation results indicate a higher system performance in terms of the blocking ratio and the number of admitted connections.
