In multimedia wireless communications, various types of traffic are handled. Generally, each of these traffic has a different stochastic property. An access control protocol for multimedia wireless communications, therefore, are required to adopt a stochastic property of multimedia traffic. Conventional access control protocols, however, do not consider such characteristics of multimedia traffic. In this paper, we propose an access control protocol for multimedia CDMA packet communications. The

This estimation exploits the stochastic property of multimedia traffic. To carry out such estimation, we employ an adaptive algorithm as an estimation method. We evaluate the performance of the proposed protocol by comparing it with the performance in the case where a stochastic property of traffic is not considered.
