Abstract: An approximate analytical formulation of the resource allocation problem for handling variable bit rate multiclass services in a cellular direct sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) system is presented. The novelty in this paper is that all grade-of-service (GoS) or quality-of-service (QoS) requirements at the connection level, packet level, and link layer are satisfied simultaneously, instead of being satisfied at the connection level or at the link layer only. The analytical formulation shows how the GoS/QoS in the different layers are intertwined across the layers. A complete sharing (CS) scheme with guard channels is used for the resource sharing policy at the connection level. The CS model is solved using a K-dimensional Markov chain. Numerical results illustrate that significant gain in system utilization is achieved through the joint coupling of connection/packet levels and link layer. This can translate to more revenues for network providers and/or lower charges for mobile users.
