Guard-based call admission control schemes support admission priorities based on resources sharing with differentiated resource capacity limits. To minimize deviation from call blocking/dropping targets due to nonstationary call arrival condition, dynamic guard-based schemes with predictive adaptation control adjust differentiated capacity limits according to predicted future arrival rates based on specified estimation algorithms. Existing dynamic guard admission schemes are developed under the assumption of perfect estimation, which may not be possible in a highly nonstationary environment and, thus resulting in failures to maintain targeted blocking/dropping probabilities. This paper presents the fairly adjusted multimode-dynamic guard bandwidth scheme, which is a dynamic-guard-based scheme over code-division multiple-access systems with predictive adaptation control to adapt interference-based guard loading-limits under nonstationary call arrival condition; and reactive adaptation control to counteract arrival rate estimation errors. When the predictive adaptation control policy mode is not able to maintain long-term call blocking or dropping targets due to estimation error, this will trigger reactive adaptation control policy modes that include temporary blocking (preemption) of one or more lower priority classes subject to fairness constraints to ensure lower priority classes are not preempted at all costs during estimation error recovery. Analytical and simulation results show that proposed scheme is able to provide performance guarantees in terms of dropping probabilities under nonstationary traffic arrival and imperfect arrival rate estimation.
