We consider a multi-cell (MC) code division multiple access (CDMA) system that supports multiple service classes, including peak rate allocated and elastic ones. Peak rate allocated sessions—when admitted into the system—transmit at a constant bit rate, while elastic sessions can be slowed down at the expense of increasing their residency time. Admitted sessions cause an instantaneous bit rate-dependent interference in neighbour cells. In this rather general setting, we propose a method to calculate the class-wise blocking probabilities as the functions of the estimated so-called inter-cell coupling factors. In the paper this coupling factor is the ratio between the uplink path gains to different Node-B:s (that can be easily obtained in a CDMA system from pilot measurement reports), but our model could include other coupling measures as well. We find that when these coupling factors are underestimated, the system may get into false states (FSs) or false rate states(FRSs) that lead to violating the noise rise threshold. As traffic becomes increasingly elastic, the probability of FSs decreases, but the probability of FRSs increases. Based on numerical results, we make the point that as the traffic becomes more elastic, avoiding the underestimation of these coupling factors as well as exercising MC admission control plays an increasingly important role in guaranteeing proper service quality.
