This study presents performance of call admission control and resource reservation schemes based on the mobility of the users in WCDMA cellular systems. In order to guarantee the handoff dropping probability, the mobility of the user is predicted based on a realistic mobility model. The mobility prediction scheme used in this study is used to estimate the set of candidate cells into which the mobile may move in the near future and calculates the likeliness value for each candidate cell. It also estimates the time slot at which the mobile may enter into the candidate cells based on the distance between the current location of the mobile and the candidate cell center distance. Based on the mobility prediction, resource is reserved in terms of Interference Guard margin (IGM) to guarantee some target handoff dropping probability. The admission threshold is adaptively controlled to achieve a better balance between guaranteeing handoff-dropping probability and maximizing resource utilization. Simulation results show that the call admission control scheme with mobility based resource reservation scheme outperforms well when compared with the fixed reservation scheme.
