In a totally reconfigurable network, base stations can be viewed as amorphous entities that are dynamically configured to an optimal combination of radio access technologies based upon the time-varying user density and QoS requirements of the application traffic that they present or will present to it. In such a network, admission control is typically useful in providing load balancing and hotspot mitigation functionalities. In this paper, we propose to use a Measurement-based Admission Control (MBAC) to manage the allocation of baseband processing bandwidth in a multi-standard base station. Using realistic Voice and Video traffic traces, we highlight the MBAC performance in both homogeneous and heterogeneous traffic environments.
