Maged E Beshai, Todd D Morris: Admission control in an ATM switching node. Northern Telecom, March 9, 1999: US05881049 (26 worldwide citation)

The invention resides in a precise technique for determining the equivalent bit rate (EBR) of a variable bit rate (VBR) ATM connection. The technique extends a known single-source method developed by Gibbens and Hunt. The new technique applies to shared facilities and hence exploits the statistical- ...

Louis C Yun, Bjorn E Ottersten: Channel assignment and call admission control for spatial division multiple access communication systems. ArrayComm, Henry K Woodward, Townsend and Townsend and Crew, March 23, 1999: US05886988 (231 worldwide citation)

The methods for channel assignment and channel reassignment are suitable for SDMA systems that accommodate the dynamically adaptive spatial channel conditions and allow for more frequent reuse of conventional channels. Three methods for uplink channel assignment are described: a cost function method ...

Eric Charvillat: Resource reallocation for flow-enforced user traffic. NEC Corporation, Ostrolenk Faber Gerb & Soffen, May 24, 1994: US05315586 (200 worldwide citation)

In a packet (ATM) network, a source node at the entry of the network is responsive to a connection request from a user terminal for invoking a CAC (call admission control) algorithm to accept or reject the request depending on the amount of resource requested by the user, and allocates a portion of ...

Gopalakrishnan Meempat, David J Houck: Method and apparatus to provide centralized call admission control and load balancing for a voice-over-IP network. Lucent Technologies, June 7, 2005: US06904017 (129 worldwide citation)

An admission control and load balancing system controls admission of packet streams or calls to a network and balances the packet traffic across the network, improving quality of service. The system includes a central database which stores information including cost data associated with individual p ...

Hay Yeung Cheung, Louise E Hosseini Nasab, Daniel J Yaniro Jr: Method and apparatus for dynamically controlling the admission of calls to a network. AT&T, December 2, 2003: US06657957 (127 worldwide citation)

A network call admission control system receives a call and determines a call characteristic requirement and a network characteristic parameter. The call is admitted to the network based in part on whether the call characteristic requirement is satisfied by the network characteristic parameter. As a ...

Takeo Hamada, Takafumi Chujo: Method and apparatus for evaluating QOS in ATM multiplexing apparatus in which priority control is performed and for controlling call admissions and optimizing priority control on the basis of the evaluation. Fujitsu, December 3, 1996: US05581544 (124 worldwide citation)

A probability transition matrix S.sub.t is formulated that expresses a multiplexing process which includes nested threshold priority control and classified priority control. A state equation using the matrix S.sub.t is solved by substituting therein upper and lower bounds of a probability distributi ...
