As users in a GPRS/EGPRS network have different Quality of Service (QoS) demands, the network aims to satisfy their demands while maximizing the utilization of the existing resources. A crucial aspect of the resource allocation problem in cellular data networks is the admission control (AC). We propose a new session admission control algorithm that overcomes most of the difficulties encountered by the existing AC algorithms. The novelty of our approach is the use of fuzzy logic (fuzzy inference) for the AC. We demonstrate the efficiency of our AC algorithm by simulations.
