The goal of admission control is to support the quality-of-service demands of real-time applications via resource reservation. We introduce a new approach to measurement-based admission control for multiclass networks with link sharing. We employ adaptive and measurement-based maximal rate envelopes of the aggregate traffic flow to provide a general and accurate traffic characterization that captures its temporal correlation as well as the available statistical multiplexing gain. In estimating the applications' future performance, we introduce the notion of a schedulability confidence level which describes the uncertainty of the measurement-based “prediction” and reflects temporal variations in the measured envelope. We then devise techniques to control loss probability for a buffered multiplexer servicing heterogeneous and bursty traffic flows, even in the regime of a moderate number of traffic flows, which is important in link-sharing environments. Finally, we have developed an implementation of the scheme on a prototype router and performed a testbed measurement study, which together with extensive trace-driven simulations illustrates the effectiveness of the approach in practical scenarios
