The coexistence of different cellular networks in the same area necessitates joint radio resource management for enhanced QoS provisioning and efficient radio resource utilization. We propose adaptive bandwidth management and joint call admission control (JCAC) scheme for heterogeneous cellular networks. The objectives of the proposed adaptive JCAC scheme are to enhance average system utilization, guarantee QoS requirements of all accepted calls, and reduce new call blocking probability and handoff call dropping probability in heterogeneous wireless networks. We develop a Markov chain model for the adaptive JCAC scheme and derive new call blocking probability, handoff call dropping probability, and average system utilization. Performance of the proposed adaptive JCAC scheme is compared with that of nonadaptive JCAC scheme in the same heterogeneous wireless network. Results show an improvement in average system utilization of up to 20%. Results also show that connection-level QoS can be significantly improved by using the proposed adaptive JCAC scheme.
