Forthcoming cellular networks will provide multimedia services along with QoS guarantees. In this context admission control is a key aspect in the design and operation of such systems. In this paper we consider several admission control policies together with appropriate algorithms for their analysis and design. We conclude that the family of randomized stationary policies provide the required versatility to adapt to several goals for both network planning and operation. Appropriate algorithms stem from the fact that randomized stationary policies can be suitably analyzed and adjusted by means of Markov decision processes theory and linear programming techniques.
