There is an enormous increase of traffic on the network due to usage of real-time multimedia applications, which became an indispensable part of Internet traffic in the present day world. These applications include voice over IP, streaming audio and video, Internet gaming and real-time video conferencing. Such applications are multimedia information, geographical pictures, social network applications and global sharing applications. In order to reduce this traffic, high quality of service is needed which would be possible by Adaptive mechanisms. Integrated service on the network flows offer a bounded delay packet delivery to support real time applications. To provide bounded delay service, networks must use admission control to regulate their load. It is very mandatory to allocate and manage resources for multimedia traffic and various concurrent applications flows with real-time performance, in order to provide reliable quality of service (QoS). In this paper, we develop an enhanced model and an algorithm for admission control of real-time flows; comparisons among various distinguish features of admission control algorithms. In our approach, admission decision is made for each flowat the edge routers, but it is scalable because per-flow states are not maintained and the admission algorithm is simple. In the proposed admission control scheme, an admissible bandwidth, which is defined as the maximum rate of a flow that can be accommodated additionally while satisfying the delay performance requirements for both existing and new flows, is calculated based on the available bandwidth measured by edge routers. The admissible bandwidth is a threshold for admission control, and thus, it is very important to accurately estimate the admissible bandwidth. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated by taking a set of simulation experiments using bursty traffic flows and the results are found to be encouraging.
