Since code-division multiple-access (CDMA) capacity is interference limited, call admission control (CAC) must guarantee both a grade of service (GoS), i.e., the blocking rate, and a quality of service (QoS), i.e., the loss probability of communication quality. This paper describes the development of a new capacity design method based on these two concepts. Theoretical expressions for GoS and QoS as functions of traffic intensity and CAC thresholds are first derived from the traffic theory viewpoint, and then a design method using these expressions is presented. At that time, two strategies for CAC are assumed. One is based on the number of users, and the other is based on the interference level. Computer simulation results are presented that strongly support the proposed design method. Furthermore, numerical examples and a performance comparison of the two strategies considering various propagation parameters, nonuniform traffic distributions, and various transmission rates are shown
