This paper proposes a novel real-time adaptive admission control (AAC) scheme with a desired quality of service (QoS) guarantee and high network utilization in high speed networks. The QoS is given in terms of service delay, which is defined as the time it takes for a source to get admitted into the network after it initiates its intended request, packet/cell losses, and transmission delay (time taken to complete transmission from its initiation). AAC uses the following information - the available capacity from a novel adaptive bandwidth estimation scheme, a congestion indicator derived from a congestion controller, peak cell rate estimate from new sources, along with the desired QoS metrics, and outputs an 'admit' or 'reject' decision signal to the new sources while guaranteeing QoS and network utilization. Simulation results are presented by streaming ON/OFF and video data into the network. Results show that the proposed AAC admits significantly more traffic compared to other available admission control schemes thereby guaranteeing high network utilization while maintaining the desired QoS.
