CDMA2000 1×EV-DV has been proposed as one of the global standards of third-generation (3G) networks, which adopts TDM/CDM and adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) techniques to enhance the data rate. The current CDMA2000 1×EV-DV standard specifies all possible combinations of system parameters, but there is no any further specification in the standard on how to dynamically change the system parameters to support the quality-of-service (QoS) requirements imposed by the upper-layer applications. In the meantime, one of the major deficiencies of previous research work done in this area is that they all are based on the channel models of physical layer such as Rayleigh model, which is unable to capture the link-layer QoS parameters such as queueing delay. Since the dynamic resource allocation usually resides in the data link layer, a wireless channel model at the link layer would be desirable to handle the QoS requirements. In this paper, we develop a dynamic resource allocation scheme using the effective capacity link model to support delay-bounded multimedia services in CDMA2000 1×EV-DV networks. Extensive simulations have been set up and the simulation results show that the proposed dynamic resource allocation scheme significantly improves the delay and throughput performance for all types of application traffic with various QoS requirements.
