In Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM) wireless networks such as 3GPP LTE and IEEE 802.16 WiMAX, the scheduler should allocate more resources to users with lower channel quality, such as users near the edge of the Base Station (BS) coverage area who are attempting handovers. In conventional queue-based models, this feature has not been considered in Call Admission Control (CAC) so far. In this letter, we propose a new ring-based model of the BS coverage area to allow a more detailed and accurate analysis. We determine mobility-related parameters such as call dropping probability due to mobility, and validate our results using simulations.
