A threshold-based adaptive resource reservation scheme for soft handoff calls in wireless code division multiple access (CDMA) cellular networks is proposed. The scheme gives handoff calls a higher admission priority than new calls, and is designed to adaptively adjust the reservation-request time threshold according to the varying traffic load. The individual reservation requests form a common reservation pool, and handoff calls are served on a first-come, first-served basis. With the proposed scheme, a minimum grade of service (GoS) in terms of new call blocking and handoff call dropping probabilities can be achieved. Simulation results are given to demonstrate the improvement in the GoS performance in comparison with other schemes.
