Summary: 
A key problem under imperfect power control in multimedia DS-CDMA networks is how to guarantee the differentiated outage probabilities of different traffic classes resulted from the uncertainty of received powers. In addition, in order to utilize the scarce wireless resource efficiently, as many users as possible should be admitted into the network while providing guaranteed quality-of-service support for them. In this work, a call admission control scheme, Differentiated Outage Probabilities CAC or DOP-CAC, is proposed to achieve the above goals for imperfectly power-controlled multimedia CDMA networks. Two important features of CDMA systems are considered in our scheme: one is the power multiplexing among bursty traffics and the other is the power allocation scheme employed at the physical layer. The validity and efficiency of DOP-CAC are verified by numerical examples. Two power allocation schemes, Limited Optimal Power Allocation (LOPA) proposed in [3] and Quasi-Optimal Power Allocation (QOPA) we proposed in [6], are considered respectively and compared in the performance evaluation of DOP-CAC. The results show that DOP-CAC achieves much better resource utilization under QOPA than it does under LOPA. By employing QOPA at the physical layer and DOP-CAC at the link layer, our work suggests a high efficiency solution for QoS support of multimedia traffic under imperfect power control environment.
