Formalizing Set of Multiservice Models for Analyzing Pre-emption Mechanisms in Wireless 3GPP Networks

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 601)


Users of wireless 3GPP LTE networks are provided with a wide range of multimedia services with varying QoS requirements; due to this fact a problem of an effective network resources’ distribution arises and, consequently, a task of the optimal RAC schemes development. According to the international standards, two types of services are defined within LTE networks – GBR services and non-GBR services. The GBR services generate streaming traffic and non-GBR services – elastic traffic the bit rate of which can dynamically change depending on the cell load. Also, the service priorities differ and are organized with the help of different mechanisms, e.g. service interruption mechanism and mechanism of bit rate degradation. The paper proposes a formal unique description of RAC schemes that is used to develop an example set of models realizing three possible pre-emption based scenarios in multiservice wireless networks.


  • Wireless network
  • Radio admission control
  • RAC
  • Guaranteed bit rate
  • GBR
  • Non-GBR
  • Service interruption
  • Bit rate degradation

The reported study was funded by RFBR according to the research project No. 16-37-00421 mol_a.
