Problem statement: Resource management is one of the most important engineering issues in 3G systems where multiple traffic classes are supported each being characterized by its required Quality of Service (QoS) parameters. Call Admission Control (CAC) is one of the resource management functions, which regulates network access to ensure QoS provisioning. Efficient CAC is necessary for the QoS provisioning in WCDMA environment. The effective functioning of WCDMA systems is influenced by the power control utility. Approach: In this study, we propose to design a fuzzy logic based power control for Wideband Code Division Multiple Access Wireless Networks. This proposed technique is aimed at multiple services like voice, video and data for multiclass users. The fuzzy logic technique is used to estimate the optimal admissible users group inclusive of optimum transmitting power level. This technique reduces the interference level and call rejection rate. Results: By simulation results, we demonstrate that the proposed technique achieve reduced energy consumption for a cell with increased throughput. Conclusion: The proposed technique minimizes the power consumption and call rejection rate.
