In this study, we propose to design a call admission control algorithm which schedules the channels for Real time and non-real time users. In Long Term Evolution (LTE) 3GPP Networks, several works were done on call admission control but these works rarely considers scheduling of resources to the real time and non-real time users.When the system meets traffic oriented performance degration, maximum resources are utilized for load balancing and to maintain the consistent quality. In order to avoid the channel degradation and improve the Quality of Service (QoS), the call requests are classified into New Call (NC) request and Handoff Call (HC) request and the type of services are classified as VoIP and video. Then based upon the Received Signal Strength (RSS) value, the channel is estimated as good channel or bad channel. Resource allocation is made for VoIP users based on traffic density. Then non-VoIP users and the non-real time users are allocated resource blocks using the channel condition based marginal utility function. When there are no sufficient resources to allocate, it allocates the resources of bad channel users there by degrading their service. We have designed the network topology with G (n) and B (n) for representing the available good and bad channels. We investigate the performance degradation when the real time, Non real Time, video and VOIP environments based on RSS threshold value.Comparison is made with the VOS in terms of the paramenters like throughput,bandwidth,delay,fairness and rate. Our proposed method provides good performance and quality.From our simulation results we show that this admission control algorithm provides channel quality and prioritizes the handover calls over new calls which allocates resources to all kinds of users.
