In this paper, we propose a new measurement-based fair call admission control policy for heterogeneous packet radio networks. The objectives of the new admission policy are to 1) reduce computation overhead and rapidly re-allocate resources to keep desired Quality of Service (QoS) demands, 2) relieve hot-spot cell by reducing the number of handoff calls from neighboring cells, 3) fairly admit voice and data traffic to prevent declined service degradation. With numerical analysis, we evaluate QoS constraints and inter-cell as well as inter-service fairness by using queuing model, which is described by a two-dimensional continuous-time Markov chain. Finally, we validate our model's accuracy by comparing results of analytical model with ones of event-driven simulation.
