This paper presents experiments carried out in bandwidth reservation schemes using the Mobile Multimedia Network Simulator (MMNS) developed at Queen’s University. Static Selective Partitioning bandwidth schemes are performed in order to minimise dropped calls for real-time users in a highly loaded environment where wideband traffic is dominant. Reserving extra bandwidth for prioritised traffic has a negative impact upon non-prioritised traffic. The simulation results quantify this impact and show the optimum amount of bandwidth to be reserved for prioritised traffic for a maximum reduction of dropped calls.
