New approaches are presented to facilitate dynamic radio bandwidth management for mobile communication systems. The aim is achieve an overall high level of QoS for both handoff calls and new calls. At the same time, the utilization of wireless network resources, i.e. the revenues earned by the operator. The simultaneous satisfaction of these two conflicting interests, under varying mobility and network traffic conditions, will be difficult. However, a balanced operation could be obtained by applying two novel approaches in system management. First, apriori information about possible handoffs, in the form of cell transition probabilities could be provided by the mobile, which is based on data collected by the mobile itself. This information is used to make handoff reservation requests in neighboring cells. Second, simultaneously controlling the radio resource reservation and new call admission to the system. This approach controls both the amount of reserved channels and the number of new calls admitted in a dynamic way. A theoretical analysis and a simulation have been used to study these approaches and it has been demonstrated that these approaches perform better then other reported approaches in the literature.
