Methods and systems are provided for using packet-transport metrics for call-admission control. In an embodiment, a base station provides packet-data service to mobile stations, which comprises (a) providing wireless service over an air interface in a wireless coverage area and (b) providing transport service over a packet-data network. The base station measures, over at least the packet-data network, each packet-transport metric in a set of one or more packet-transport metrics. The base station conducts call-admission control in the wireless coverage area based at least in part on the one or more measured packet-transport metrics.
