Adaptive modulation control (AMC) has been proposed as the next generation modulation method for increasing network performance in cellular networks. Adaptive modulation is a powerful technique to improve the spectral efficiency in wireless transmission over fading channels. Similarly, it is possible to apply the adaptive modulation technique to Call Admission Control (CAC) scheme in order to enhance network performance and satisfy Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. In this paper, we investigate a novel call admission control (CAC) mechanism in the cellular networks using AMC. First, we build the system model in which takes into account to both CAC and AMC. Second, we verify that the CAC model can offer better performance by using adaptive modulation technique. Finally we prove our claim by numerical analysis.
